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.
