  • I have been reading with interest your series "Nebraska High School Basetball Project" Excellent articles for each year to date. Brings back some wonderful memories.

    Did notice in the above article mention of Frank Chapman as coach of Geneva in 1965. Archie Chapman was the coach for Geneva in 1965. Frank Chapman was Archie's son and also won a girls state championship. Keep up the great work.

  • I see the correction with regard to the coach for Geneva. Thank you, Archie's wife Dee is still living and before I gave the ariticle to her wanted it to honor him. Played for Arichie at Geneva in 64 and 65. Played against Peithman from Hebron, Mauer from Madison, Osentouski from Ord, Mike Newman from Auror and Schroeder from University High (great shooter). . Solid district with York, Geneva, Aurora and sometimes Seward, Who ever won it usually did pretty well at state. In 1965 was in Class C but beat us twice. They lost at State of University High, who we beat at the old colliseum in Lincoln to start the season. Two others on that Hebron team were pretty salty. (Dean Kruger 6'6" and Dale Wilkens 6'5". Played point for Archie in 1965 and tailback during football season. We really had a better football team than basketball. No playoffs to prove it. Went on to college and played at Wesleyan with Keith Mauer.
