Albemarle High School

We were given a summer workout, and we’d just better come back in shape.  But since I lived in Charlottesville, I knew that they were coming — I knew Kent was, because he played at Lane, and even though I was finished high school, I mean.  And I was telling George in a conversation, I became pretty close with Stanley Lynch, he’s one of the finest men I’ve ever met.  Just a big teddy bear, for a big fellow.  No, it was just like any other day.  But what’s embarrassing, I didn’t put myself in their place.  I mean, they may have been the first four at all, I don’t know.  I’m sure there were Black students before they came, but they hadn’t integrated any teams yet.
