Hank

Throughout the past week, I have read numerous articles remembering Hank Gathers. I was to young to remember him but the articles published in the newspapers have painted a good picture. ESPN did a 30 for 30 on Loyola Marymount and the uptempo offense they ran. On all accounts, Hank was an electric player and star in the making. But even more he was a fantastic person. The world lost him to young. Heaven mustve needed a scorer.

Some of the articles I have read this past week are linked below as well as some of the youtube clips. Definitely worth your time reading.

Shoutout to the Difference for sending me the youtube clip of Loyola Marymount vs LSU. In the Difference’s words, these highlights show Shaq as just an animal and the Loyola Marymount pace was incredible. Some unbelievable talent on the floor that night with Gathers and teammate Bo Kimble going toe to toe with Shaq, Stanley Roberts, and Chris Jackson.
