Recommended Posts

A tragic loss for the basketball world today with the passing of future Hall of Famer Kobe Bryant in a helicopter accident along with 8 others including his 13 year old daughter....Kobe was a local HS legend here in the Philly area and TheEagleman was able to see him twice back when he played at Lower Merion....Black Mamba is arguably one of the top 10 players of all time and his talents and personality transcended the basketball court.....RIP Kobe.....prayers to his wife, 3 daughters and rest of his family....his Dad Joe (Jelly Bean) Bryant was also a local basketball hero playing with LaSalle University and the Sixers......😪

Horrible. Doesn't seem real.

When Jenks conquered Kobe: 20 years ago, the Trojans rallied to hand Bryant his final high school loss (Tulsa World)

A  few months before the Jenks High School football program began its run of 13 state championships 20 years ago, the Trojan basketball team recorded an improbably sensational victory.

For those who wore Jenks uniforms that night — on Dec. 29, 1995 — it was an unforgettable experience.

For most of those Trojans, it was the zenith of their sports lives.

In the semifinals of the Beach Ball Classic in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Jenks rallied from a 14-point deficit and defeated Kobe Bryant’s Lower Merion team 77-62 in overtime. It would be the final high school loss for Bryant, who subsequently drove the Aces to 27 consecutive wins and a Pennsylvania state championship...

What an unbelievable tragedy. So many guys I played with tried to model their offensive games after his. He seemed to be an incredible father. Can't imagine how painful for his wife and daughters.

Terrible tragedy for this family that has lost a husband/father and daughter/sister. I hope they know the Lord and can cling to Him for comfort.
