Montello, WI Basketball
The Dolan and Mateske boys got their share of basketball pointers from Grampa Mateske - and lost your share of games of H-O-R-S-E to him as well. Don't let the shorts fool you. Grampa had game. He was one of Montello's best athletes - and in the whole area as well. If he hasn't told you all about it, just ask him. He loves to talk about how it was and how they played, and he knows whereof he speaks. Ask him about being in the army, overseas, at the end of WWII. He even played on a team there. But get ready to hear about passing the ball, getting a good shot, and play defense.
Don't know for sure the time and place of this photo, or what team it is - whether Montello High School or another city team. Maybe we can find that out yet. But the uniforms allow make it a classic!
I do like the shoes though! Whadya think?
