Vern Sir Louis

Vern joins teammates Russ Estey and Dave Appleby, already in the Hall of Fame, who were members of the University of Akron 1934 basketball squad that captured the Ohio Conference Championship. The UA squad posted an excellent 15-1 mark and Sir Louis was named to the All-Ohio and All-Ohio Conference teams. The four-year regular at forward under the late Howard "Red" Blair, another Hall of Famer, was among top scorers during his collegiate days - averaging 11.7 points when offense was secondary to defense. Since his basketball days, Sir Louis has influenced many a youth by introducing them to the Christian way of life.
