Flashback Friday: 1969 Lincoln High School Basketball

Flashback Friday: 1969 Lincoln High School Basketball

The new Sanford Pentagon has gotten a lot of attention recently as it is said to take fans to an era of basketball that has since been all but forgotten.

In this edition of Flashback Friday, we take you back to 1969 with a look at the Lincoln High Boys Basketball team. Doug Barstow reports:

You may say head coach Floyd Farrand came with the franchise. This is his fifth year at the Patriot’s helm. This is the fifth year the school has been in existence and as he puts it, the first year for a senior squad. Seven senior letterman formed the nucleus of the team in 1969.

"We hope for a good year and we're going to count on the seniors an awful lot. We think we'll be strong off the boards, probably as strong as we've ever been. The biggest we've ever been, the overall quickness is good, if not the best we've had. I've always had quick kids but we have some quick boys inside defensively,” Farrand said back in 1969.

Farrand said probably the biggest question marks are filling the spots of the 1968 seniors who are now playing college ball.

“As the seniors come along that we are counting on and the juniors will move and push them, we could become very competitive by mid-year. And we're hoping for a real fine year out of Vince, of course, it's his third year and there's no injuries so far and we're hoping for the best,” Farrand said.

The Patriots opened the season at Sioux City Central. Farrand expected Sioux City East, Yankton and Rapid City Central to be especially tough. Along with city rivals O'Gorman and Washington.
