Thanks.....I see a young (soph) 2 time All American Defensive Back for Hillsdale College Scott Elwer. Pretty sure he was also an all conference basketball player his Sr. year at Hillsdale after not playing basketball his 1st couple years. Was a suitemate (or whatever it is called) of mine.....many years ago. Some good memories.

Not basketball related but Scott Schulte from Delphos St. Johns was also a 2 and maybe 3 time All American running back at Hillsdale, performed very well at the NFL combine, got a look in some preseason games, played well but didn't make the team (Dolphins maybe).

I was at the 1983 DSJ vs. Kalida game. DSJ had no answer for Joe Verhoff so they had to go zone with a double on Verhoff. DSJ played a nearly flawless 2nd half missing only a couple of shots and still only won by 2. Kalida probably had the 2 best players on the floor in Joe Verhoff and Randy Kortokrax, but DSJ had a solid 5 with no real weaknesses. It was a great game. To this day I still consider Joe Verhoff the best small school inside player I ever saw play.
