The Nebraska High School All-State Basketball Project - Saluting 1991

by Bobby Mills (1000 Yard Guy)

In my humble opinion, 1991 was the beginning of a string of golden years in Nebraska high school hoops. The Super-State team of Jason Glock, Terrance Badgett, Curtis Marshall, Erick Strickland and Andre Woolridge is a tough quintet to beat when comparing their feats to prior Super-State or Class A all-state squads. The only group to top this '91 crew may have been the 1982 fivesome of Bill Jackman (Grant), Dave Hoppen (Omaha Benson), Mike Martz (Beatrice), Kerry Trotter (Creighton Prep) and Ron Kellogg (Omaha NW).

Wahoo and Falls City Sacred Heart each won their 4th state title in their respective classes in 1991. Wahoo was in the midst of an incredible winning streak that saw the Warriors compile a mind boggling 101-1 record during Jason Glock's 4 year stint with the Warriors.

Check out Wahoo's game by game record which appears at the conclusion of this blog. Wahoo opponents rarely came close to touching the Warriors during the 1990/91 campaign until the State Finals.

But let's not dwell that at the moment, we have several young men and outstanding basketball teams to salute.
