Woody in Knox HOF

Note his Old Siwash sweathirt.
Dave Wood, Knox class of 1972 was inducted into the Knox College Hall of Fame. Woody was a Streaks great who was a leader on the Streaks '68 second place in State team. Woody transferred to Knox from Western and went on to become a three year starter at Knox (freshmen were not eligible to play varsity in the NCAA at that time). Woody led the Siwash in scoring every year at Knox and led the Midwest Conference in scoring his senior year by putting in 21.7ppg.

Woody was Grinnell basketball before Grinnell.

Woody was presented a framed jersey from Coach Purlee and the 2011-12 Prairie Fire. Woody could not help himself, he had to give the players some advice. He gave his too classics- "Shoot it when you got it, and think about shooting when you don't." and "Remember when you pass, two of three things are going to be bad."

This is a nice story in the Register-Mail.
