Excellent that you wrestled at UVA

Tunstall was always a baseball powerhouse and back in your time they were very good in basketball. I think Anthony Parrish was probably a couple of years ahead of you and Jeff Huffman may have been in your class. My brother went to Laurel Park and graduated in '79 too. Not to be indelicate, but he was the white left-hander who scored a lot of points for them (took plenty of shots). Sadly, Henry Johnson and Mike Helms died within a month or so of each other. As Doughty alluded in his article on Henry, the Piedmont was a powerhouse basketball district. It's remarkable the number of D1 players it produced from the early 70s through the 80s (and not just in basketball).
