1. Todd Staker-6’3” 1981-1984-started as a Sophomore-guard who could jump out of the gym. Played on two Final Four teams, 82 as a Sophomore and 84 as Senior. Burg made it to the finals in 84 losing to future NBA player Jerome Lane and Akron St. Vincent 75-71. Todd averaged around 30 in the tourney that year.

2. Andrew Burleson-6’6”, 1998-2002- started as a Freshman-could play about anywhere. Sweet shot and good hops. Could handle the ball very well for being 6’6”. I believe he is the all time leading scorer at Burg.

3. Brad Walke-6’1”, 1980-1983-started as a Sophomore. Guard who could shoot from anywhere or take you off the dribble. If three point shot would have be around he would have scored some serious points. Played on the Burg Final Four team of 81-82.

4. Jonathon Eaton-6’1”-1991-1995-started as a Freshman come tourney time helping lead A Burg team, that I believe had a losing record going to the tourney, all the way to the Regional Final. Playmaker who was good at driving to the basket and dishing off or making the shot. Helped lead Burg to the Final Four in 95 where they lost to a strong Orrville team in the state finals. Upset a strong Cols Bishop Hartley team in the semifinals.

5. Cam Miller-6’7”-2004-2007-started as a Sophomore. Good balhandler for his size. Could shoot the three or beat you off the dribble for a thunderous dunk. Helped lead Burg to back to back Final Fours in 2006 and 2007.
I would put Mark Eaton on this list he started some games as a freshman very good player terrific scorer high basketball I.Q
The Eaton kids...are they related to former OHHS coach John Eaton? Coach E was the oaks coach when I was in school.

At Logan:

Mark Shaw, '71 - averaged over 20 points and 20 rebounds his senior season and over 20 and 18 as a junior. 2nd all-time leading scorer.

Coy Lindsey, '97 - all-time leading scorer. Great guard who could shoot the lights out.

Kerry York, '86 - had his senior season cut short due to an ankle injury. Was on pace for a 1,000 point career (without playing Varsity as a freshman)

Greg Poston, '68 - school's first 1,000 point scorer. Just a tremendous all-around athlete.

Keith Myers, '86 - teamed up with York for the best two-year run in school history, including a 22-2 season in '85-'86. That team won 21 straight even after York's knee injury and Keith picked up the slack.


This list doesn't include 1,000 point scorers Doug Stiverson ('89) or Patrick Angle ('10).

Others for consideration:
Eddie Joe Grandy ('53)
Gene Morgan ('56)
George Stump ('60)
Jim Pierce ('74?)
Tim Moore ('89)
Eric Burris ('93?)
Kevin Fisher ('14)
Bo Myers ('19)

Anybody else I'm missing, Chieftain fans?
I would definitely throw in Jeff Morgan. Great all around athlete, but basketball was probably his best sport. Pretty sure he played varsity when only a freshman and could really light it up when he got hot. I think he held a record at one time for most points in a game ,but not sure. Knee injuries really hampered his career and if he would have stayed healthy everybody would recognize that name.

Watch Gene Morgan when I was young. Great ballplayer. The Paterson brothers were good too.
Mark Shaw always seemed to be where the ball came down. He was in sports Ill. as a peewee baseball player. Pitched and won a 64/00 game. Think it was for the Hocking [Herferd's]?????.

Hard to argue that one. Maybe would add these ones:

Mike McBroom ('77)
Jack Miller ('85)
Josh Lawrence ('00)
Yes!

Great additions - McBroom and Lawrence were both SEOAL MVPs. Miller gets overshadowed by playing with Myers/York (plus DJ Conrad).

Jeff's another great addition. LHS Hall of Famer. Didn't play as a freshman, but up until Doug Stiverson, Eddie Joe Grandy was the ONLY player who had.

He missed a few games each year due to his knees, you're correct.

Minford

1. Steve Yeagle (all-time leading scorer)
2. Chad Barber 6'7-6'8
3. Brandon Rowe (1,000 pt scorer)
4. Jared McCray (good luck stoping 6'6 320 lbs down low)
5. Austin McBee/Eli Parkes (both 1,000 point scorers)


Also can't forget Trey and Butch Kelley, Kenton Gullion, Shawn Sommer, Ryan McGraw.

Minford’s Top Players IMO

1. Steve Yeagle - This guy was the man back in the day. Leader in several school stats including Most Points
2. Brandon Rowe - This kid had to probably be one of the best players that I’ve seen play for Minford. One of the most unselfish play makers that played for the Falcons besides being the 2nd leading scorer in school history.
3. Eli Parks - What a shooter. This kid was a great player and 5th all time leading scorer.
4. Austin McBee - One of the best defensive players to ever play for the Falcons. This kid could jump out of the gym and Minford’s 12th all time scorer.

Old school from Waverly: Bob Thompson (OSU), Denny Thompson (Ohio), Phil Miller (Ohio), John Shoemaker (Miami). The fifth spot could come from one of Doug Tracy, Rick Eblin, Trevor Wall (NMSU football), and Jake Kretzer (Akron).

Full disclosure, my knowledge of Tiger basketball is close to zero from 1980 to 2000.

I don't want to come off as a jerk here, but there's no way Walls is even in the same discussion as Kretzer if it coming down to one spot. I know the Thompson's and Shoemaker were great, don't know about Miller, but if he went to OU, he had to be good.

But, Kretzer completely carried a Tiger team to a District Title his senior year and is easily the all time leading scorer. I know the good argument about the 3 point line, but that kid could score from anywhere. Had a really nice career at Akron as well.

Playmaker who was good at driving to the basket and dishing off or making the shot. Helped lead Burg to the Final Four in 95 where they lost to a strong Orrville team in the state finals. Upset a strong Cols Bishop Hartley team in the semifinals.

5. Cam Miller-6’7”-2004-2007-started as a Sophomore. Good balhandler for his size. Could shoot the three or beat you off the dribble for a thunderous dunk. Helped lead Burg to back to back Final Fours in 2006 and 2007.
Don't forget Scott Gray, (Dayton) Brian Bays (Miami) and Jeff Meadows (Kent State) from the 70's, all played D1 college basketball.
Gray as a senior,averaged 25 points and 13 rebounds a game. And some thought he was even better on defense.
They called him the 'Pete Rose of Basketball' in southern Ohio because he was the hardest working and most motivated player seen in the area.

When he went to the highly-respected 'Five Star' basketball camp in Pittsburgh with 300 other blossoming stars, he was voted 'Mr. Hustle.' When he went back the next year and competed with another 300, he again was named 'Mr. Hustle. Heavily-recruited, Gray chose the University of Dayton.
Dayton coaches referred to him as a potential 'major factor' in the team's success the next four years, but a foot injury slowed down his career.

I thought Adrian was OH scoring leader.

Brisker could golf. 12x FV Champ

Didn’t golf all year...played in Championship Flight and won....he was in his 50’s I believe too

Adrian Hayes did score over 2,000 points and is the leading scorer, but I thought Brisker may have also scored over 2,000. An interesting side note on Hayes is that he scored 30 points against Chauney-Dover in a 1952 game, but Chauncey-Dover football star Hubert "Hubbie" Bobo tied him for high scorer in the Oaks 82-59 win.

I would put Mark Eaton on this list he started some games as a freshman very good player terrific scorer high basketball I.Q
Also would add Jack Miller I think his senior year was 78-79 not sure but was really good went on to play 4 years at the university of Hawaii
What about Scott and Brian Grey? (Brian went to Green Sr.year) Craig Brown,Joe DeCamp,Paul Newman and Bob Shaw? Maybe not top five but close.

Surprised none of the Athens folks have mentioned Mike Wren.

Was one of the best players on their District championship teams and is a Hall of Famer at Miami U. Maybe the Bobcats still hold a grudge on Mike for being a Redskin? (Lol)

Don't forget Scott Gray, (Dayton) Brian Bays (Miami) and Jeff Meadows (Kent State) from the 70's, all played D1 college basketball.
Gray as a senior,averaged 25 points and 13 rebounds a game. And some thought he was even better on defense.
They called him the 'Pete Rose of Basketball' in southern Ohio because he was the hardest working and most motivated player seen in the area.

When he went to the highly-respected 'Five Star' basketball camp in Pittsburgh with 300 other blossoming stars, he was voted 'Mr. Hustle.' When he went back the next year and competed with another 300, he again was named 'Mr. Hustle. Heavily-recruited, Gray chose the University of Dayton.
Dayton coaches referred to him as a potential 'major factor' in the team's success the next four years, but a foot injury slowed down his career.

Scott Gray was one of the great ones that's for sure. I picked my 5 based on all of these players played a big part in getting Burg to a Final Four or the state final game. All of them but Burleson, I added him because he is the all time leading scorer at Burg. All of the other players quoted throughout my post on here were all great players at Burg.

Burg and Portsmouth would be about the same. Hard to just mention 5 as both have had some superstars over the years. That rival in the 70's and 80's was by far the best of its time back then.
