    IMO. John Roberts could never be top 5 at Augusta. There has just been too many players come out better than him. I mean when you have a kid that tall and he wanted to step out and shoot 3's instead of just hammering on people. Thats weak. I would say Derick Bach would make top 5 players instead. The other 4 i would probabley have to agree Bill could just play, Robin could hit any shot he pulled, Kirk done it all, and Patrick was a shooter.

    Can't remember his name but there was a black kid from Augusta that was very, very tough.

    You're right, I didn't see Larry Wood play, but I was talking about the team with coach White.

    That is him. THanks. He was very talented with the basketball in his hands.

    On a sidenote: Connie Appelman or Rachael Hamilton may be better than a good number of players listed on the Augusta side.

    They were good, but I never saw Connie play and I will admit Rachel Hamilton was a very good player!

    I've been familiar with Bracken Co, Augusta, Deming, Maysville, St Pat, Mason Co, Tollesboro, Lewis Co, Fleming Co teams since the early 50's and they have all had their share of good ball players. I think Larry Wood of Bracken, Fred Walker of Maysville, Ronnie Lyons and Chris Lofton of Mason, Chris Harrison of Tollesboro, Ralphie Davis of Lewis Co, Fran Stahl and Jay Gast of ST Pat, the Kelsch boys and Ike Reynolds of the 1960's Augusta, and Deming--probably Steven Staggs ,Scotty Graves or Joe Mitchell and Fleming Co would have to be Clay Evans. This would be interesting to see what others think .

    I forgot to mention Deron Feldhaus of Mason Co . He was one of the tops in our region of all times.
