Former St. Albans guard Tony Coles died.
T.C. was a lively little guard at St. Albans when they cracked the Washington Post high school Top 20 in the mid-1970’s, and knocked off teams such as Western, Anacostia, Good Counsel, and Chamberlain. Unfortunately, cancer had ravaged TC’s entire body, and in his final days, his teammate Mike Gross, took care of T.C.
As small as T.C. was, my lasting memories are of how easily he could dunk.
