Historic Hood River
Meet the Hood River High School Basketball team of 1919. The man in the middle is Coach Moore. The smiling guy is Ray Slavens. The rest of the names are hard to make out.
It’s hard to know if Coach Moore was really tall or if basketball players were shorter in those days. It seems like height would have always been an advantage in a sport requiring you to get a ball in a basket, but these boys must have been pretty good as they were at the state tournament in Eugene.
I’m expecting those shorts and socks to make a comeback any year now.
