Isn't that JR on the right, second row?

If you click on "next" in that picture, it takes you to the 1920 Heavyweights. Look at the first row on the left. You'll see "Schmeckpepper"

That's me--- Otis Schmeckpepper. I was high scorer that year-- 3 ppg.

Please....... no comments about the kneepads.

Love those socks. Padgett, is that where you got the idea for the fishnets?

If you look at the first slide, you'll see the "Class of 08" has got a ball with "07" on it. Obviously this particular team wasn't composed of math majors.

Oddly enough, there was a teacher at this school in the 50s and 60s whose name was Schmeckpepper. I don't remember his first name, but it very well could have been the same guy.

BTW - probably the most famous basketball player from this high school (not me - since I didn't play basketball in HS) is Jerry Colangelo. The most famous baseball player (not me - since I didn't play baseball in HS) is Jim Bouton.

FYI - I played football (sort of - I was a kicker) and tennis.

Actually, it's in Cook County. You know, the county where it's against the law to be a Republican.

This would be a much better post if the darn graphics would show up. Last time I had trouble, I got them to come up on a different page and then they'd post, but that's not working this time. It keeps saying that I'm not allowed to see that page, and that it's forbidden ... nah, maybe I don't want to see it after all...
