Pottsboro 1972 State Basketball Champions

Posted: Updated:

POTTSBORO, TX - It was a big Saturday afternoon in Pottsboro.  Eight members of the 1972 Basketball State Champion boys basketball team gathered to be recognized for an achievement that happened almost 40 years ago.  37-0.  That's what the team went under first year head coach Don Dodd and stormed their way through the Texas Class A playoffs.  Each member got a plaque with the team picture engraved.  And the crowd was reminded of a time in Texas when football wasn't king.

"We were a basketball town. It was a basketball school, and basketball players were pretty important. They were really accepted, and people love them. You know, people love a winner," Dodd explained.
