Great Writing as always! I remember Mike Rounds and That 1980 Group Very Well as we all do when you’re just 1 Grade Before them. You always played Sports With Them and sometimes against them.
Sorry to hear the Passing of Mike Rounds! He was riding his Bike? That’s why I don’t ride a bike anymore. Too many recks as a kid growing up and a few Motorcycle ones as well.
RIP Mike Rounds!

Such a nice tribute, Dennis. Hard to believe it’s been so long and we lived in the “good old days”. So sorry to hear of this tragic accident.

Great story. As a 82 grad I remember the tournament in Paul’s backyard. Fun times And Mike Chandler was my inspiration for growing my hair after playing Amador hoops
