    The Facebook thing didn’t work so I’ll try here to see if I can connect. Would you consider helping me with an evaluation of my technique. I’m 69 but I compete in the Alabama Masters(seniors) games in Free Throw Shooting and some other sports. Gotten some email responses from Ed Palubinskas and Bill Killian but no one local. I hear you’ve been to the Trussville YMCA and that’s where I shoot/work out. If you would consider any time I could meet with you and have you look at my shot I would appreciate it. Email: hooblert@gmail.com or cell 603-6847. Thank you.

    Coached Rick at Southeastern College. Never coached a player that could be so accurate from the line.

    • Thanks Coach! I think I only missed 2 free throws in that season (Only shot 12 though😁). I do remember you beat me in H-O-R-S-E twice! Not many people have done that without doing crazy trick shots, but you beat me straight up.
