    As a captain, I played furiously. I drew a lot of fouls, but I brought everything I had to every practice and to every game. I left everything on the court because I simply wanted the team to win
    Quote from well known personality who led their high school team to a state championship.

    I read this in the paper yesterday. Sad, but an amazing life this man must of had living 109 years. I'm a big historian buff especially when it comes to both World War I and II and the stories Mr. Babcock could of shared I probably would be left awestruck. And end of an important era in Canadian history yesterday.

      Wow this guy lived for a very long time and seen it all.

      Another amazing fact when he was born, they were still using peach baskets in basketball games.
