Trojan great Bill Sharman passed away recently. I first know of him due to what he did with the Lakers but the more I read of him the more I admire. As a youth he was pretty impressive:
"Sharman won 15 varsity letters at Porterville High, excelling not only in basketball but also football, baseball, tennis, track and boxing. One day in 1944, he won the discus throw and shot put in a morning track meet, took the San Joaquin Valley tennis title in the afternoon, then pitched the baseball team to victory in the evening."
He won PCC basketball player of the year with USC and Bob Cousy called him "the best athlete I've ever played with, or against."
