Those Dell Courts - As a HS sophomore I first touched the rim during a game

I was young and skinny back in the early 1970's and had never touched the iron on a 10 foot goal. It was a life changing experience. I could later dunk a tennis ball then a volley ball then a woman's size basketball. But never could get a regular basketball dunked, my hands are too small. I did once get called for goal tending in a High School game. Now I am old and much more heavy than I ever thought I could possibly get when I was younger and have almost no "ups".

I have nothing but wonderful memories of playing games at the Dell against University Students as a high school student. I learned much that helped me later in life.
