One of Cleveland’s all-time great players, he was a member of several of the city’s outstanding teams that won numerous Muny League titles in the 20’s and early 30’s. Was invited to join the famous Rosenblum-Celtics team in 1932, but declined. A guard, he excelled in rebounding and was a superior play maker.
