Very cool trivia, thanks.
My first year I owned Bob Welch when he won 27 games.

Everyone in high school thought we were the biggest nerds on earth. We were freshmen doing 'paperwork' during lunch.

And I bet now every single one of them has a fantasy football team

Kind of misleading as 3 of those UM guys were starters on a National Championship team the previous year.

True. Only Glen Rice graduated and they were seen as still a pretty good team.

Genuine Risk (1980) and Winning Colors (1988).

Question: Back in the day before freshmen could play on NCAA men's basketball teams, there was one year between Lew Alcindor's senior year and Bill Walton's soph season. Which former Cleveland Cav started at center for UCLA between these two Bruin greats?

OK, fair enough, here's one of my favorite sports questions:

What high school is the only high school in the nation that can make this claim:

1. An alumni played in the first major league All-Star game in 1933

2. An alumni played in the first NBA All-Star game in 1951

3. An alumni played in the first Super Bowl in 1967

Obviously, it's 3 different players but all graduated from the same high school.

Bonus points if you can name the 3 players.

I don't know Kurt from Akron, so it possibly could be, but I do know it's an old question from me that I've asked a few times on the old JJ Huddle website over the years. If you believe you know the school go ahead and post it and we can still continue part 2 of this question by naming the players.

I may have seen you post this question before. Is this school on the "left side"? If so, I have the city, but cannot recall the school. (Though I remember something about the school, I believe). May also remember the answer to part three. Nothing like being certain, eh?

EagleGuy,

Not sure what you mean when you ask if the school is on the "left side" ?? Are you referring to left of the Mississippi River, meaning the school is located in a western state or do you mean politically on the "left side" meaning it's a blue or democratic state. I guess I just need clarification as "left side" of what ,lol ?

I was thinking of left side of the headpin in bowling. Surprised you did not get that! Is the school in a borough of NYC? If not, I am way off.

Ok, bowling never crossed my mind. I can tell you that the high school is not located in either the state or city of New York, so that only leaves 49 more states to go. If no one gets this by the time the Kentucky- UCLA game is over, I will give the state that the school is located in as a clue.

Newark High School.

1933 MLB All-Star was Chicgan Cubs OF Woody English.

1951 NBA All-Star with the Detroit Pistons was Fred Schaus.

1967 Super Bowl participant with the KC Chiefs was Jim Tyrer.

I do not want to admit that I found the answer after an hour of research on a Saturday afternoon.

Irish Buffalo,

Yes, we have a winner. My hometown Newark Wildcats is the only HS in the country
that can boast of an alum that played in the first Major League baseball All- Star game, the first NBA All-Star game and the first Super Bowl game. This is one of those records that can never be broken. Great job. Sorry it turned into a Saturday afternoon research project for you, lol.

I should probably mention that Woody English actually was an infielder for the Cubs and not an outfielder and that Fred Schaus played for the Ft. Wayne Pistons prior to the team evolving into the Detroit Pistons later.

This question is usually a guaranteed bar bet winner anywhere in Ohio except Licking County.

I guess it's now your turn to come up with the next question .

Being that timeline I instantly thought about the Cleveland/Akron/YTown corridor. I then remembered that Len Dawson was from Alliance but that quickly went nowhere. It was not until I finally looked at the rosters from the original 1933 AS game that I realized it was Newark with the only Ohio player being English.

That was a heckuva question and one I will not forget.

I'm trying to think of an Ohio relative sports trivia much like yours that cannot be easily Googled.

If anyone else has a good one go right ahead.

Which Ohio high school was the first to win a boys state championship in all three of the major sports: football, basketball and baseball?

Unfortunately, this is pretty easy to google.

Yes, since OHSAA tournament play. Including the football championships that started in the early seventies. Boys basketball and baseball tournaments started in the 1920's!

I believe the answer is Bishop Fenwick who completed the trifecta in 1982.

Canton McKinley finished the trifecta a mere 2 years later. Despite being the school's most successful sport, boys basketball was the hold-up for McKinley after many years of coming up short in Columbus.


Assuming I'm right, my question is:

The Indians made the following trades in the early '90s that were instrumental in making them into MLB contenders in the mid to late '90s. I'll give you the player(s) the Indians gave up in the deal, you name the team they were dealt to and which player(s) the Indians received in return.

1) Eddie Taubensee and Willie Blair
2) Felix Fermin and Reggie Jefferson
3) Chris James, Sandy Alomar Jr, and Carlos Baerga

I don't believe any school had won all 3 sports prior to football's playoff era. By my count, 19 schools have won titles in all 3 of the major sports. I did not Google this one.
