Greenville High School Boys Basketball Team, 1919
From Senior Year Book, Class of 1919, Greenville High School
"The basket ball season was a success. The boys' team had the skill, speed and grace which makes a really good team. It is with much disappointment we recall the hard luck with which our boys played at Grove City the first night of the tournament. It can only be attributed to hard luck that G. H. S. did not win the cup, as it is well known that Greenville High had one of the best, if not the best, teams in the country."

Other boys in the photograph: Floyd Christman, Neale Raub, David Seiple, Albert Jennings and Lawrence Smith.
Elmer Stanton, back row, far left. Corky. Captain and Center of the team. Corky's fame at shooting fouls and making baskets is unsurpassed. He is a member of the county all star team. Identified by Tom Felt.
Floyd Christman Dutch. Manager and Forward. Dutch is another well known basket shooter of whom we are very proud.
Neale Raub. [probably front row, seated] Dusty is our little but swift Forward. His rapid shooting amazes all spectators.
David Seiple. Davy is a Guard who is always on the job. His floor work is much admired by all.
Albert Jennings. Al is a second Stonewall Jackson at guarding and woe be unto the man who finds himself with Al as an opponent.
Lawrence Smith. Dutch Smith is another of our guards who plays, as all Greenville High players do, to win.
Earl Hickey. Although this is Hickey's first year for basket ball, he showed that he sure could guard and jump center.
