Carleton College Basketball 1967 Hook Shot
This is a photo of yours truly that I found in the year book, jersey #42 taking a hook shot over an opponent in the Carleton Men's Gym back in 1967. Our coach, Jack Thurnblad was honored this past year as we dedicated a score board in this building for him and his wife who dedicated their work and home to many Carleton students over the years. Being 6'8" + got me recruited to playing this non contact (;-) ) sport in high school and college. Division III was just about right for me. I hit the floor enough to deserve back surgery for sciatica in 1991 which relieved the extruded disc and allows me to walk and ride a mountain bike with reasonable flexibility.
