       From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 05/19/08 - "Re: More Music, Please, Sir!":

Well,

Jimmy starred in many films, but none (save one) had a memorable theme.  Of course he was a Brigadier General in the Air Force Reserve, but "Wild Blue Yonder" might not connect with the readers.

So, back to the one film which had a memorable theme. It was made all the more memorable because it was released as a single by Gene Pitney. Of course, I am speaking of "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance".  For those who remember the film, one might ask, "Was Stewart's character the "man who shot Liberty Valance" ... or not? No matter. for the film is irrevocably associated with Stewart, John Wayne, and Lee Marvin.

   AHA! You, Captain, are a SOO-PER GENIUS, but then, we've long since established that! Thank you, Brown Eyes!

Its doors long shuttered, Newport News High had a basketball power in 1958.

   Thanks so much, Tommy, Charlotte, and Johnnie!

   I went to bed last night thinking that two other people had also sent me this link, but I can find no trace of them now, nor no memory of who they were, so I am left to conclude with Doc Holliday, "Well, I suppose I'm deranged..."

   Here's the article; I'm certain you'll recognize many of these names:

Lefty's Typhoon was the perfect storm

Its doors long shuttered, Newport News High had a basketball power in 1958.

| Daily Press,

WILLIAMSBURG - Seated at a round table in a hotel ballroom, Lefty Driesell fished around in a small gym bag he brought with him. He pulled out an old, framed photo and a scrapbook bulging with yellowed newspaper clippings, and let the memories and the people wash over him.

Suddenly, Driesell was 26 years old with a crewcut and a whistle, and the dozens of men and women around him in their late 60s were 17 and 18 again.

Time stood still for several hours as the Newport News High Class of 1958 held its 50th reunion this weekend. The formal gathering was Saturday night, but Friday evening more than a hundred people assembled informally.

Among them were Driesell and several members of the Typhoon's 1958 unbeaten state championship basketball team. A Norfolk native, Driesell coached at Newport News High for two years before leaving for Davidson College to begin one of the most successful college coaching careers in history.

"I coached for 45 years," the 'Hander, now 76, told the folks Friday, "and that was the only undefeated team I ever had."

The Typhoon finished 25-0 that season, beating Eastern District rival Granby High 50-48 for its third consecutive state championship. Newport News went 75-2 during its three-year title run, led by the late Bucky Keller.

"I had no idea what it was like to lose," said Donald Ellis, the starting center as a junior and senior. He missed the Typhoon's only loss in his last two years due to an illness.

"I was 50-and-oh," he joked.

The Newport News High reunion weekend coincides with the induction of Keller to the Lower Virginia Peninsula Hall of Fame. Keller, who died in 1977 after suffering a stroke at age 38, will be inducted this evening at a ceremony at the Hampton Coliseum.

"I always say that it seemed like the Good Lord put Moses Malone on this earth to play basketball," Driesell said. "I feel the same way about Bucky. He was a natural."

Keller averaged 22 points per game as a senior and was the hub of the three-time state champs.

"He could have averaged 30 or 40 points a game," Lefty said, "but we beat people so bad that I'd only play him maybe three quarters most of the time."

Athletics were an immense part of the fabric of Newport News High, particularly in the late 1950s. Nearly all of the school's teams were at least competitive, if not excellent.

Basketball games always were sold out. The annual Thanksgiving Day football game against archrival Hampton High drew thousands. State champion half-miler David Peltz remembered fans traveling to track meets.

"I, myself, probably never would have gotten through high school if it hadn't been for sports," said basketball team member Billy Bradley. "You had to keep your grades up and stay straight. Your teammates and teachers watched out for you and helped you out."

Nothing drew more attention than the school's basketball team, which in 1958 won the last of its three consecutive state titles, a feat that hadn't been accomplished since Norfolk's Maury High did it from 1925-27.

"It was a pilgrimage every spring to go to the state tournament," recalled Virginia Beach mayor Meyera Oberndorf, proud member of the Typhoon Class of '58 as Meyera Ellenson.

"The boys played like gazelles, like their feet were on air," Oberndorf said. "We'd go to the games and we'd scream so loud for every basket that by the time we got back on the bus to come home, we were all hoarse."

Team member Allen Foster said, "We learned from the ground up. We had all played together since we were 11 or 12. We knew each other's quirks and idiosyncrasies, where each other would be on the court. We probably had a little more talent, but the fact that we played so well together was a big advantage."

The late Julius "Julie" Conn was the centerpiece of Typhoon athletics, serving as a coach and administrator at the school for more than four decades before he retired in 1969. Though nationally known as a track coach, he was also an extremely successful basketball coach, winning six state titles and appearing in six more championship games before he gave up coaching the sport at the varsity level in 1953.

Lefty recalled that before the Turkey Day football game versus Hampton, Conn asked football coach J.C. "Cowboy" Range if he could address the team in the locker room. Driesell and assistant coach Johnny Palmer eavesdropped around the corner.

(The story loses a little something in the re-telling, but you have to imagine Lefty's deep voice and southern drawl.)

"Julie talked about when he played Hampton and how he had pneumonia and his mother told him he couldn't play," Lefty said, "but he said he had to play because it was Hampton and how important it was. He got going and before you knew it, everybody on the team was crying -- even Bucky was crying, and he was a tough guy -- and Julie was crying, too.

"He finishes and the players go tearing out of the locker room all fired up, and Julie comes and finds us -- he's got tears running down his cheeks -- and he's all excited and he says, 'How'd I do? How'd I do?' We said, 'You did great, Coach.' (Pause.) We still lost 52-0."

(Actually, it was 35-14, but you get the idea.)

Conn and Bill Chambers, Driesell's friend and predecessor, persuaded Lefty to leave his alma mater, Norfolk's Granby High, and come to Newport News High in the fall of 1957.

Chambers' teams won state titles in 1956 and '57 -- he then departed to coach at William and Mary -- and began the 57-game winning streak that included the unbeaten season in 1957-58. The streak didn't end until midway through Lefty's second and final year with the Typhoon.

"Driesell worked our butts off," said guard Kenny Roberts, who went on to play at William and Mary. "We were pretty cocky and thought we had it made because we'd already won two championships. But he ran us hard in practice. It kicked us back on our haunches, but it was probably good for us."

The Typhoon beat Norview 53-37 on Jan. 31 to set the Group One (the precursor to Group AAA) record of 32 consecutive victories. Seven days later, they had what was until then their closest call, a 50-48 win against a Warwick team they had beaten by 42 points just two weeks earlier.

Newport News High, which closed in 1971, concluded an unbeaten regular season (19-0) and won its 40th straight game Feb. 28. The Typhoon breezed through the Eastern District tournament, beating Granby for the third time that season 48-41 in the title game.

Newport News handily won its state tournament quarterfinal and semifinal games at the University of Virginia's old Memorial Gym and faced Granby again for the championship.

The Typhoon trailed from late in the first quarter until midway through the fourth.

"I'll never forget it," Roberts said. "The coaches lit into us at halftime. It wasn't like we were going through the motions, but we weren't playing the way we were capable of playing."

Newport News finally took the lead, but Granby star Ronnie Byrd tied it at 48 with 18 seconds remaining. Typhoon guard Jack Tesh was fouled with six seconds to play. A 69-percent foul shooter -- stats courtesy of Lefty's scrapbook -- he made both free throws for the final margin.

Granby frantically pushed the ball upcourt for a potential tying shot. Tesh was whistled for a foul as the final buzzer sounded. The referees conferred briefly and decided that the contact came after the buzzer. Game over. Third consecutive state title. Twenty-five-and-oh. Forty-six consecutive wins.

"It was a great time," Ellis said. "I'm glad I was alive at that time, the '50s. If I could go back, I would."


    From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 05/18/08 :

Hi, Carol:
 
While reading this Newsletter this evening, I clicked on the link to view the profile of Fleet Marine Force Combat Corpsman HN   Allen Groshong ('66) USN (KIA). Well, wouldn't you know it...I was taken to the Log In page, instead of the profile. I had double-checked access to this profile before I sent it to you to consider placing it in a Newsletter. But for some unknown reason, it did not work properly this evening.
 
So sorry for those who made an effort to access the profile. I have repaired it now.
 
Thank you for posting this in your Newsletter.
 
TYPHOON Regards,
Joe Madagan ('57) of FL

   Thank you so much, Joe! When I couldn't access it easily, I just assumed I "wasn't holding my mouth right" as I tried.


    From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 05/18/08 - "NNHS Basketball Trophies.":

Hi, Carol:
It seemed to me that the TYPHOON Nation might enjoy learning about the work of     Bobby Turpin ('58 - of VA) in securing the NNHS Basketball Trophies for the Championship Years in which Coach Bill Chambers and   Coach Lefty Driesell coached the TYPHOON.
 
The three trophies are being given to the coaches for their respective years in coaching State Championship Basketball Teams for the TYPHOON.
 
Bobby is far too modest to even want any recognition, but that makes it even more important that we know of his kindness and leadership in making this happen for some fine coaches who touched our lives.
 
TYPHOON Regards,
Joe Madagan ('57) of FL
 
 
Hi, Bobby:
 
I got so excited about the Basketball Trophies when I read your email, that I picked up the phone to call Coach Bill Chambers. I did not get an answer this afternoon. I am sending him a copy of this email, so you will have his email address and he likewise will have yours so you can communicate.
 
You have done a wonderful thing by getting the trophies released so they can go to Coach Chambers and Coach Driesell. Just hearing your description of how happy it made Coach Driesell to receive his team trophy made we want to speak with Coach Chambers on the subject.
 
Yet, you are the one most responsible for this act of love and kindness, and I wanted you to communicate directly with Coach Chambers, for after all you were one of his managers during the time he was Coach at Newport News High School.
 
So, here is his mailing address and telephone number (in Alabama) so you can ship the trophies directly to him:
 
    (available upon request)
 
Recommend United Postal Service so he can have a Tracking Number.
 
TYPHOON Regards,
Joe Madagan
Class of 1957 NNHS

   WOWZERONI-RINI!!! Thanks so much, Joe - and Bobby! What splendid friends we have!


    From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 05/18/08 - "TYPHOON Trophies":

Hi, Carol:
 
FYI some background on this matter.
 
Mizpah,
Joe
 
    From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL to     Bobby Turpin ('58) of VA - 05/14/08:
 
Hi, Bobby:
 
It was such a pleasure to be able to speak with you by telephone yesterday. I hope you have a wonderful time at the Class Reunion. You were kind to mention the time and place, and for a moment I thought how very nice it would be to drop for during the social hour but it seems it will not be possible.
 
I hope to see Vernon Brinkley ('55) in Portsmouth, as we served together at Marine Barracks, Norfolk Naval Shipyard.
 
As I am the "coordinator" for this Reunion of old Marines, I better stay close to my duty station in Portsmouth.
 
The trophy transfer idea is a great idea. Let me know if I can facilitate the transfer of the 1956 and 1957 trophies to Coach Chambers.
 
TYPHOON Regards,
Joe Madagan
 

    From Bobby Turpin ('58) of VA to     From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 05/19/08:
 

Hi Joe & Eva:
 
It sure has been fun and a blessing to me to be in contact with you concerning something that I know is close to your heart.  We both share very similar interest in the NNHS basketball program of the 50's.  After talking to you I contacted       Al Dorner, NNHS Class of 66, and retired athletic director, in the NN School system.  Al is the complete caretaker of all the NNHS trophies.  I conveyed my thoughts to him concerning giving the 1957-58 State Championship trophy to Lefty Driesell at our 50th class reunion.  He thought it was a great idea and concurred, as he said no one except the team and class even knew anything about the trophy.  So Friday evening we presented it to Lefty and he sure was surprised and taken by it.  Also, I indicted to Al, that the 1956-57, trophy be given to "mighty Coach Bill Chambers", again he thought it would be a great and wonderful jester on the part of our alumni.  So I have the 1956-57 Basketball Trophy here in my computer room.  I am absolutely thrilled to see both of these trophies going to Bill Chambers and Lefty Driesell.  I have your home address and await your instructions on mailing it to you.     
 
The Class of 1958 had a wonderful reunion weekend and to top it off Bucky Keller was inducted in the Peninsula Hall of fame Sunday evening at the Hampton Coliseum.  Lefty Driesell gave the keynote speech on Bucky. The plaque was accepted by his and    Evelyn's (Fryer Fish, the Head Cheerleader of 1958 - of TX) only daughter,    Susan (Keller Beers), who was born in Blacksburg in 1961.  What a wonderful "Typhoon" weekend all of us had.  NNHS was represented by at least 60 people at the awards induction.  Many of the basketball players of that era were present.
 
Well Joe, I just wanted you to know what was up and I await hearing from you.  I hope your trip back to Hampton Roads was also a great experience for you.
 
Take care.
 
Your friend,
 
Bobby Turpin 

   WOWZERONI-RINI-ROONI- ROOTIE-TOOT-TOOTIE!!! Thank you again - so very much, Joe - and Bobby!

When Liberty Valance walked around the men would step aside
'cause the point of a gun was the only law that Liberty understood
When it came to shootin' straight and fast---he was mighty good.

>From out of the East a stranger came, a law book in his hand, a man
The kind of a man the West would need to tame a troubled land
'cause the point of a gun was the only law that Liberty understood
When it came to shootin' straight and fast---he was mighty good.

Many a man would face his gun and many a man would fall
The man who shot Liberty Valance, he shot Liberty Valance
He was the bravest of them all.

The love of a girl can make a man stay on when he should go, stay on
Just tryin' to build a peaceful life where love is free to grow
But the point of a gun was the only law that Liberty understood
When the final showdown came at last, a law book was no good.

Alone and afraid she prayed that he'd return that fateful night, aww that night
When nothin' she said could keep her man from goin' out to fight
>From the moment a girl gets to be full-grown the very first thing she learns
When two men go out to face each other only one retur-r-r-ns

Everyone heard two shots ring out, a shot made Liberty fall
The man who shot Liberty Valance, he shot Liberty Valance
He was the bravest of them all.

The man who shot Liberty Valance, he shot Liberty Valance
He was the bravest of them all.
