2nd guess John Elway
I find it fascinating nobody else has ever pulled off the trifecta.
Ainge? I know he was a Mormon, but Punky QB was a Catholic and went to BYU.
when they announced who signed on signing day.
s signed a LOI, is Dave Batton, who gave his verbal a year before. Don't remember the section for which it was posted as it was posted on the bulletin board outside of every sections.
From there on, it was Katy bar the door. For, recruiting was big business.
I'm sure Ainge's recruitment was to be found on Terranova. Was Lemming or Emfinger around for Ainge's recruitment? Was there a basketball recruiting guru at the time of Ainge?
Color me surprised that sprack doesn't know (ha). Maybe Olson will know.
I do remember, now that you mention it, recruiting news for basketball for the big stars. Digger was trying to get Magic Johnson, for example. I heard about Kelly Tripucka from guys in the dorm from NY.
But I didn't know anyone who was a recruiting junky back then. Or that there were such people.
He was a high school All-American in baseball and football (USA Today national Player of the Year in both) and two-time All-State in basketball.
