First of all, I am not a Trimble County native.
I was hatched in a small hospital in the tiny, hospitable hamlet of Milan in Ripley County, Ind. Two years after Milan recovered from my birth tiny Milan High School won the Indiana high school basketball state championship. Yep, the same burr-headed Milan Indians that the movie “Hoosiers” was based on went to school with my older siblings. My brother still maintains contact with several of the former players these many years later.
