John Gipson seen on the right in the photo joins us to discuss the dominating Crispus Attucks Flying Tigers! Last Saturday the Crispus Attucks Tigers closed a 58 year title drought by winning the 2017 3A Indiana High School Basketball State Championship! John Gipson along with a few other Attucks Legends were there to talk to the team and cheer them on to victory. When you discuss the first all black state championship team in the United States, jealousy and racism are a part of that history. John discusses that along with many other stories (including stories of the best player to play Indiana high school basketball - Oscar Robertson) of playing high school basketball for one of the most dominating high school basketball teams of all time!!!
Absolutely nothing like Indiana high school basketball. Coach Gill played both basketball and baseball at Montezuma high school, went on to write for the Statesman (Indiana State University paper) and coached high school basketball in both Indiana and Georgia. A fantastic storyteller about small town Indiana high school basketball, sit back and listen as we have a discussion in part one of a two part interview!
This boy could jump! Gus grew up in Uniontown - Pennsylvania, played his college ball at Virginia, and spent several years in the ABA and NBA. A great conversation about the game he loves, the life he lived, and the life that is now! If you get a chance look for the 30 for 30 documentry by ESPN for an amazing recollection on the Spirits of St. Louis "Free Spirits" Just an amazing documentary on that team and the ABA.
