Keeping the Nostalgia Alive Show!

Episodes

Join us as Coach Rex Wells helps to keep the nostalgia alive! Just an amazing interview, not only about the 1957-1958 Springs Valley Black Hawks but about a life in the game of basketball and beyond! The book is outstanding, I would love to see it on the big screen! It's called "The Valley Boys: The Story of the 1958 Springs Valley Black Hawks". In the summer of 1957, the Indiana towns of French Lick and West Baden decided to merge two high schools that had been fierce rivals for decades. It was a decision that did not go over well in those divided communities. W. Timothy Wright weaves the gripping story here, chronicling the events that followed the fateful consolidation of two schools and two basketball teams. But an extraordinary first season slowly revealed the team’s fierce determination to win, and the players became a microcosm of the two towns, teaching its citizens how to come together as one united community. As these ten boys and their coaches embarked on an epic journey, filled with valuable life lessons, they had no idea they were about to record one of the most unforgettable chapters in Indiana high school basketball. The Valley Boys shares a story of a special high school basketball team that came together for an unbelievable, unexpected, and historic season. Click here - Order your copy today!

Just to sit down and talk about basketball for over an hour is absolutlety the best use of an hour in my opinion! Especially when that hour involves a converstion about playing basketball in Indiana. Floyds Knobs is one of my favorite names from the state of Indiana, John Witten played there under IBHOF Coach - Joe Hinton. John does an outstanding job sharing his memories of the game he played in Indiana and while playing as a Rice University Owl, and beyond!
