PHIL GARCIA prepares to toss the opening tip for a game played between archrivals Pymatuning Valley and Jefferson at the old Falcon Gym in Jefferson on Dec. 16, 1980. No. 35 is Pymatuning Valley’s Maurice McDonald, a member of the Ashtabula County Basketball Hall of Fame, while at right is Laker teammate Eric Van Court. Jumping against McDonald is Jefferson’s Randy Roach, while fellow Falcon Rick Berrier, a two-time All-Ohioan, is on the left. In the foreground at left is Star Beacon Sports Editor Don McCormack. Garcia, like McDonald a member of the ACBF Hall of Fame, is in his 41st year of officiating varsity basketball.
