Retro Ode to RFH Basketball Season

Well, boys basketball season at RFH seemed as quick as a slam dunk this year.

With a final home game played on March 1 against Lincoln High in the NJSIAA Tournament, semifinal round, Lincoln won 49-44. But, RFH’s record is a winning 18 wins to 8 losses.

So, as an ode to the basketball season and RFH’s usual champion streak, the Retro Pic of the (George) Day takes us back to a banner home game in the 1970s. Or is it just a practice? There’s an audience and two balls in the air and one being dribbled.

It’s anyone’s guess what’s going on in this shot. But, by the looks of RFHer Andrew Davidson, center, some wild basketball action is in play.

Recognize anyone else in this pic? One is related to a Fair Haven police officer who played RFH basketball himself and recently returned to the job after recovering from serious injury. Know who that might be?

What is going on here? Caption this one, folks.

Many thanks to George Day for this winning shot back in time!
