Effingham vs. Galesburg 1968
In scouting for Effingham, John Thiel had the luxury of flying to Effingham to scout. Chauncy Kenney (a physics teacher at GHS & my cousin), had a pilots license and flew Thiel after practice to Effingham to scout.
Thiel's report to the players, according to player, Dave Wood- "They are big and slow and it will not be close."
He was correct. Galesburg blew out the #1rated Effingham team and went on to take second in state.
