Yep. Athletics were incredible during that period of time. John Ralston on the football field and Ladell Anderson coaching basketball.

Poet script. I met Cornel Green in Ladel Andeson’s office and played against him in practice. He was an All American basketball player and was drafted by the New Jersey nets and the Dallas Cowboys. As a professional football player he was an All Pro Corner back. This is story for another day but I think the three of them were the three best basketball players in Aggie history. Gljflyfloater
You got me by a couple of years. And you got me by one player, Cornell Green. I listened to him play, but never saw him play.
Sigh. Great memories of those old greats. We are blessed.
There are a handful of us here old enough to have seen all three play. :utah: :state:

I watched Cornell Green play basketball back in the day. He had a shot fake that was so authentic that so many players went for game after game drawing fouls and Cornell getting a free throw event He was also built very solidly. Golden Days for AGGIE ATHLETICS on the gridiron and on the court. Ralston and Anderson were the best.
