Way Back When

ROCHELLE BASKETBALL TEAM’With the state basketball tournament being held this past weekend, I would like to have liked to have seen the Rochelle team of 77 years ago in 1926 compete. They won the county tournament and lost to Brownwood in the area tournament. They look older than current high school kids. Someone said they played as long as they were in school, and some were probably 20 years old. Pictured from left to right, are coaches Clifford Pickett and A.H. (Red) Floyd, Hot Wilson, Troy Cates, unknown, Lloyd Moseley, Roy Clary, Sherman Cottle and Tillman McDonald.
