They'll be talking about this team for years. That's the general consensus in Huntington this year about the city's high school basketball team. As the Highlanders move on to the state tournament in Charleston, Tuesday night's game was the one in Huntington for the sensational seniors and even for the casual fan, what a season it was.
When is a game more than a game? When people start talking about the team in historical perspective, that's a pretty good indication right there.
When that historical perspective includes visions from the past and the future crisscrossing before your eyes, it's more than just a game.
When high school athletes are known on a first name basis and attract the attention Huntington High has attracted , it really is history. O.J. Mayo's father proudly admits he's even shed a few tears.
