Transcript Frosh stars show varsity promise Above, Kilgore players trap Jeff Hickman with the ball as Ernie Johnson moves in. Right, Sonny Willis drops in layup as Mike Davis (24) races toward the basket. 114 Although the Kitten basketball squad finished their season with only an 11-10 record, the players on the team bordered on the sensational. Leading the way for the frosh was 6'-8" Dwight Davis, a former Worthing star whose shot blocking abilities rivaled those of Elvin Hayes. After Davis became ineligible for frosh ball at mid-season, 6'-5" Jeff Hickman quickly filled his shoes as team standout. Hickman's devastating marksmanship from the 20-30 foot range made him a sure starter on the 1969 varsity. Crowd favorite The crowd favorite on the team was stocky guard Sonny Willis. Willis electrified his audiences with hustling defense and steals frequently capped by fast-break layups. The Kittens lost both games against Junior College powerhouse San Jacinto. At home in Delmar the frosh fell to the Ravens by a one basket margin, 61-59. In the frosh-exes finale of the year, the Kittens edged the varsity players 85-80 in an encounter which proved a succession of fouls, miscues, and pulled muscles. The Kittens bettered the varsity by defeating the archrival Lamar Tech frosh in both season encounters.
