As much as things change they also stay the same. Basketball in our area is fast and competitive but some 49 years ago it just as much so.
The photo is of the 1964-1965 Tyner Rams who had a season record of 17 wins and 6 losses. Three of those losses were all to Murray County in tournaments.
This team also had three all-county scoring leaders in David Jones, Joe Galloway and Don Millhorn.
Coach Jim Rogers believed in defense and fast breaks to offset our lack of height. This team represented the maximum effort in their will to be the best they could be. There wasn’t one super star but instead a balance of talent between Jones, Galloway and Millhorn. Few times were opponents able to stop that trio.
It was an honor to have been a small part of such a great team.
