Sticking to my limited western d exposure since '99, the hartwell boys and Nick Pellote in Valley's incredible run back a few years ago and over the last couple years my son Steven Osgood and my 'other' son Brian Stanley who have been close friends and played basketball together since third grade for Vinalhaven.(also Vinalhaven grad. Nathan Hopkins who was a huge part of the vikings success over the last several seasons.)

Many recent players come to mind, the likes of Graham Safford, Tyler McFarland, Keegan Pieri, Alex Furness, Chris Braley, etc. A few years ago, the Big Three at Maranacook were fantastic, Ryan Martin, Will Bardaglio, and Mike Poulin. Great run they had, Martin may have had the best mid range jumper I've ever seen among a high schooler.

Chris Jerome-Cheverus-'78 & '79......... absolute beast on boards and defense in general, impeccable footwork (back to the basket), silky smooth, great touch, soft hands, brilliant court sense, great leader by example, unbelievable will to win.

Indi.......Full court chest pass, court sense, savvy, point guard who blocks shots of opposing big-men, rebounding, cool, toughness, quickest hands I ever saw (several times stole the ball by simply taking it out of the guy's hands), leader, will to win, makes you much better than you really are, inspirational, control.

Matt Donahue-Westbrook- '69.......best shooter this world has ever known

Great list and especially Matt as he literally filled gyms to capacity. Where ever VB and Matt traveled the gym was packed. He had good players around him as well which made the show even more entertaining.

I'd add Tony Michaud to the list.
