    Tried several times over the years to find info about Mike. So sorry that this is what I just found. Went to a number of Leo basketball and football games in 59, 60 and 61 with my then boyfriend. Mike was amazing. 5’7′ and he was incredible on the court and in the field. I remember a game against ? when he literally flew over all the defense piled up between himself and the goalposts. I swear I can still see it! My condolences to his family.
