Basketball Revisited

by Asa Faith Bobo Randolph
Basketball season – a special time of the year – especially for this 1961 Dora High School graduate.

When I watch basketball on television, and hear the squeaking shoes, I always think of that special sound at our rock gymnasium in Dora.
I hear the shoes of Kenneth Morrow, Buck Harris, Ray Jenkins, Ronny James, Don Andrews, Rodney McCrary, Sammy Black, Arlon Ballenger, and Jerry Stone.

I see them playing up and down that court, making Dora folks proud.
This is the time of year that I wish I could go back in time to hear their shoes again.
