Star Beacon

— The title of a 1992 movie featuring Woody Harrelson, Wesley Snipes and Rosie Perez — whose title shall not be mentioned here — was not accurate, as 6-foot-2 Rick Berrier (35) of Jefferson outjumps 6-6 Maurice McDonald of Pymatuning Valley at the opening tap of the 1980-81 Grand River Conference championship game at PV attests.

Berrier, Scott Brainard (left), Randy Roach (third from left), John March (51) and all Falcons who played varsity basketball at Jefferson as seniors since consolidation in 1962-63 have been invited back to take part in a ceremony celebrating 50 years of boys hoops at Jefferson Area High School.

The ceremony will take place before coach Jeremy Huber’s 2012-13 Falcons host Girard in an All-American Conference clash Friday night in Falcon Gym. For more information, contact former Falcons head coach Tim Mizer at 812-2687 or current Falcons JV coach T.J. Furman — himself a former Jefferson player — at 812-4175.
