Howard "Soup" Cable

This West High School athlete never attended college, taking a short cut to national basketball fame via the amateur ranks where, like teammate Paul Tobin, he vaulted directly from the M. O’Neil Moncos to the Firestone Non-Skids and subsequently performed for Paul Sheeks’ industrial quintets in the National Basketball League, forerunner of the present National Basketball. The 6-3 forward and team captain led the Firestone cagers to NBL championships in 1939 and 1940, winning all-league honors in 1939.
