Darnell Valentine, Man did that guy have some thick umm Calf Muscles huge, I think actually he was one of the VERY FIRST bigger time recruits we got. - We always have all these players come back for like re union get together - -but has he EVER been back?. - - The Kivisto’s? Tommy- -Bob Kivisto? - - Aubry Nash? - - didn’t he also have a brother that played here Dave?

Tommy Smith. - - Nino Samuels? - - Pierre Russel? does anyone else remember some of these guys? just going down memory lane this morning - - showing my age lol - oh ya Victor Mitchell - -does or has any of these guys come back? - -I know a lot of them weren’t big times studs - - but they still family. - - -Has any of these guys ever come back? - -ever been ask to come back? Calvin Pony Thompson? - - Greg Dreiling? just curious my friends
I remember when I was a little guy and in grade school and the Coach took us to the old Big 8 tourney at Munincipal it was a blast - - Walking up in the hall and looking up at Roger Bohensteihl I thought man that’s a big big guy lol. - -Anybody wanna go down memory lane with me? - - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

@jayballer54 You will certainly find this article interesting as your rehabbed knees hop you on down Memory Lane:

TJ Pugh became a doctor, I believe, and I think he has been back a lot.

@jayballer54 And don’t forget Ken Koenigs, of the 4.0 GPA, whose 6’ 10" height always caused everyone to think he should be greater than he was. He also became a doctor and I believe he was on the Alumni Association Board for awhile.
Sort of a Perry Ellis type without the spin moves. Consistent, not spectacular, if I recall correctly.
Do you remember 2-year player John Douglas with the 40+ pt game vs Mizzou? Sweet time!

@jayballer54 Well… you must quite a bit older than me buddy lol. I prob remember the 98 team as my earliest following. I was only 9 years old that season, I remember watching on our old wood grain TV when we had 4 channels. I thought they were going to win the whole damn thing that year so many good players. Kenny Gregory, Raef, Pierce and Billy Thomas who I got to meet when he played for the Cagerz in Salina, great guy. You dont really hear about these guys coming back alot ether. I know Paul came back for legends of the PHOG game and Billy was in the pregame video at one time.

@jayballer54 Tommy Smith, Suttle, Tony Guy. Good stuff. Kellogg still has the prettiest shot I have ever seen.
