    might remember a time that players only had three years instead of four to pad their stats and the players inside had no three point shot to spread the defense for the war that took place inside. Here Lavall ties together over a half of century of Butler Basketball.

    The Bainbridge Bull still looks like he could suit up...

    Ha Ha...Jeff would laugh at that. Hard to believe there was a time when the games ended kids would flock to the floor immediately for his autograph and to know he and Marlene hid their trophies from their children so they wouldn't have any pressure on the kids to excel in similar areas. Hink called him his Kangaroo and bought him a milkshake once for touching 12 feet. A bit more trivea for those old enough to remember Ed Butler Ball State (holds the ball state record for most rebounds...3 pt shot has moved both down the scoring list)...Ed met up with Jeff about a year or two ago and both rivals and wives went out to eat. Ed said he had searched for Jeff for three years hoping to find him. Ed said he had so much respect for Jeff and Jeff returned a compliment that he knew he had to bring his "A" game when playing against Ed. Fierce competitors and mutual respect for the opposition…the way it should be…

    Jeff and Marlene never miss a game, but I know sometimes those eyes during stoppage probably turn to the sidelines to see two granddaughters cheering... ;)

    Current students may know their "granddaughters as cheerleaders"...Allie and Emily

    Insane may have been on the same roster with Blue - timing is about right...

    Insane knows Jeff and Mike who is a year or so older than Jeff. I think Insane may have a year on Jeff since I think he knows Mike better. Trivea-a couple of years behind Jeff was Gene Milner for those that remember Gene. Jeff fixed up Gene with his wife and Gene is an blood uncle to Matt Waddell... Gene had some genes... ;)
