    Andy, I really do wonder if you are on drugs with some of your posts, I mean just look at some of the names you put on your list for consideration. Your even thought about adding Julian London, Brent Halsch, and Drew Rendleman. LOL!!!!

  • Andy Durham said,

    Plenty of names to get the discussion going and Julian London played at The Citadel and that is not chopped liver….

    Let the names begin and games begin….

    Some of these guys and girls will be glad that their was remembered….

    I know more local sports names than anyone that has ever lived here and I plan to put them all on one list one day and Mike Crabtree will be on that list….Just a few more names to go, but if you read correctly you would have seen that this was our last list and therefore the long list of names and be sure to ask Kevin and Julian if it bothered them that their names were on here and I think they will say that they are glad to be remembered…

    Just like someone added Justin Gainey and I always forget Justin cause he wasn’t at GDS for real long haul….I interviewed him the night he had his GDS jersey retired and Herb Sendek was there, I knew them all at one time or another….

    Justin Gainey
    Thomas Roberts
    Johnny Thomas
    Steven Rush
    Wayne Robinson. How is he not on your lists? He played in the NBA.
    JT Terry might be on the list just because he is such a winner. He might have more wins than any other GDS player ever? Five years of varsity. That would be an interesting question.
    I think there are probably more talented players but not sure if there are any that played as hard every night.

    Good call on Wayne Robinson…Hard to remember all of those from the past…Their names don’t come up that much any more…

    Good calls…

    Had this discussion with some friends just a couple weeks ago. Resounding support for Justin Gainey, Johnny Thomas, Thomas Roberts, Wayne Robinson, but I do not know who I would put in the 5th spot. There have been other great players to come through GDS. A lot of names have been mentioned, but here are a few more to consider: Jason Capel was on team as a middle schooler, Aaron McMillan went to WFU before transferring to Old Dominion, Brent Halsch went to HPU, KJ Garland to UNCA, Kenny Miller to UNCG, BJ Grinage to VMI, Steve Rush to NCATSU, among others.

  • Ryan said,

    Mike sumner needs to be in the discussion. Master charge artist

  • Justin all the way said,

    GAINEY started for 3 years. His sophomore year with London running the point and him playing off the ball. He ran point his junior and senior year. He is the best player to play at GDS.

  • Michael said,

    Konrad Wysocki was also a great player at GDS. Went on to play at Princeton.

  • Bryan Jones said,

    Paul Andreson should be on the list for hitting the two free throws to win the Little Four. Jeff Yurcisin would also be either #1 or #1B. Dee Fuller never played a single minute of varsity BBall (without whining or complaining) so he is not on my list.
