Back in the day when Nichols was recruiting almost exclusively from Central Catholic where he used to coach. Didn't Pat Murnen also go to Toledo. Kindle was from Bedford and I think he transferred in from another school - but don't remember which one.
Too bad that most of the great Toledo players ended up going to Ohio State instead of Toledo. That list includes:
Jimmy Jackson (retired jersey)
probably others I can't remember right now.
Don't forget other local talents like:
Pat Murnen was truly one of the best defensive players I've ever seen.
tOSU - William Buford
Xavier - BJ Raymond - I know there are others, I can't think of right now.
The list would be very long but the ones that went to UT is very interesting. Next time there's a game at Waite, I'll have to pay more attention to the Hall of Fame wall to see who went to UT. Same for Central Catholic, which has a great HOF wall. Rossford has had some great b-ball, I'd have to believe there were others besides Gladieux?
