Yes!

My brother went to Power Memorial with him. I went after Big Lew graduated. He graduated in 1965.

I was the chief stat taker for the team in 1969. The following year, Power Memorial had three high school All-Americans on the same team (1970).

It was a great school.

I posted some information about Big Lew and the team at: ** BASKETBALL **

The webpage has a picture of him from high school. He was one skinny kid.

Great school indeed...in fact, an incredible school. What a treat it must've been to experience and witness basketball there during those years.
