Indiana is not known for football and is more popular as a "Hoops State". The movies like Hoosiers is a clear and evident representation of the urban myth and the football prowess. When I was a young man I moved from Indianapolis, namely the Tarkington Park area, to a small town in Indiana called Heltonville. This little town was home of the Indiana Basketball Legend, Damon Bailey.
I was fresh out of the youth basketball league called Tabernacle or (TAB) and I was considered a good point guard. When I moved to this small little town I soon realized that I was not the "Baller" I thought I was. I witnessed Damon hit 30 free throws in a row at my first practice in the 5th grade and Damon was a 4th grader at the time. I used to stay all night with Damon Bailey on Wednesday nights and each Thursday morning I would wake up and find Damon outside in the driveway shooting free-throws.Add a comment
