Coudy Service Club Hoops---You're Invited To Play

Basketball Players Needed

The Coudy Service Club is still in need of basketball teams to resurrect its adult basketball league back from the dead. We will be playing 4 on 4 so you only need to find 6 or 7 players to field a team. Game scheduling will be flexible and teams will be given the option to schedule games each week on Wed evenings, Sat mornings, and Sunday afternoons/evenings.

So for all of us old farts at the local high school games telling everyone about how good we were back in the day it's time to put our talents and skills where our mouths are.

Granted it's a haul from Emporium, Eldred, and Smethport but certainly there are 6 or so adults from each of those towns that can make the trek over to Coudy once a week to relive the Cameron County, Otto Eldred, Smethport glory days….. And for the Port Allegany folks….granted you may have kicked some Coudy tail this past summer in alumni football but don't you owe it to the Coudy people for a chance to return the beat down in some hoops…..Galeton, where is Galeton, you walk in their gym and they have this huge banner about this supposedly great undefeated team they had back in the 80s certainly some of those guys should still be able to throw the rock.

How about Shinglehouse..some of those guys are butters from the outside…where is Dan the Man…..Are there any players left in Austin or did they all move up to Coudy??? And finally the good people in Ulysses/Harrison Valley..holy smokes there is never more talk from the stands than at a NOPO game so it's time for those fellas to do some practicing of what they preach………..

We are also keeping a free agent list of folks not hooked up with a team to fill in any roster spots or create a new team so if interested shoot us your name and we'll add you to the list. Perhaps we will create a flat lander team to show folks how ballin' is really supposed to be done…. Have any questions or require additional information, please contact Mark at mark.chambers@adelphia.com . Thanks!!

Mr Chambers re read your article once again an article from a Coudy person making fun of other people in other towns? I realize it was to be FUNNY (kinda was) but the Austin crack really...well those few men should remember where they came from... but wait their like the run down past Coudy players...oh yeah you can spot them in a crowd anywhere...chest puffed out almost meeting their belly's and their heads are still big and wait they still think everyone is looking at them...clue people their not looking at you were just turning around to hear the loud mouths in the stands...

To whomever that left the previous comment, this ad is not meant to be ignorant!! It's obviously someone from Austin who has a problem with people moving from Austin to Coudersport. People need to grow up!! All they want from the ad is to get some adult bball players who are interested in playing some bball for the winter instead of sitting on the couch! never any positive!! unbelievable!!

This is good hearted smack talk to stoke the competitive fire in an attempt to round up some basketball players to form a league which will raise money for youth activities in the area. It's nothing more than that.

Bring back the Rexall Rebels! Can anyone else remember some of the teams from Coudersport Community Basketball League? The team I was on was called the Market Basket C-Flutes. I remember Don Kirby, Doug Hensel and some other coaches and teachers had a team called Scratch and Company. The team from Northern Potter that came down with a real good kid named Thompson was called the Dildine Road Destroyers which is where that whole thing got started. The Beak and the Snyder brothers Hiney and Donny were on a team I think sponsored by the Corner Store and Smitty's Record Cellar had a team with Smitty playing and some Korean kid who dribbled between his legs and was fast as a jackrabbit.
Good memories!

9:58...... you seriously need to chill. Mr Chambers was writing a light hearted article to get some interest going for a local adult basketball league. A league for that matter at the gym which he built personally with his own money and time and has graciously opened to the public without ever asking for a cent. If you are that hung up on days gone by 9:58 and carry that big of a chip on your shoulder over Coudersport people or former athletes, then stay home and let the rest of the adult world have some fun. Thanks Mr Chambers for all you've done and for this opportunity as well. I enjoyed your article and hope people take advantage of your kindness.

Again re read the first post...it was funny but always at someones expense but Coudersport....in the cute article there was no slam to the town and all the other towns there were. I agree it is supposed to be a cute fun light hearted article but again learn to to do it on your own expense and obviously if there would have been a slam on Coudersport there would be more posts!

Ya know the old saying about no good deed goes unpunished. Sounds like a fun. Thanks for sharing your gym.

To Bagz Shalkowski, thanks for those fond memories. Before your time, there was a team that Pastor Kenny Lewis captained and I think Henry (LOB) Fuller was on there. Also Billy Grabe was on that team and he had a good shot from the baseline and when he swished a shot he got this big smile on his face. I remember one game when Smitty went nuts and fired in about 10 shots in a row from way off deep in the corner. They ran the standings in the Potter Enterprise and the public attended the games at the elementary school gym. Bagz I think when you played for the Market Basket C-Flutes your teammates were Tim Foust, Paul Heimel, Butch Baker and maybe Joe Renko. Those are my memories from yester-year.

I played and we called it the Hatchet League because we were sposed to call our own fouls. It got pretty rough. Jeff Haskins was on that C-Flutes team from the Market Basket too. The one team had Bob Tingley. I think that was Lob's team. Dan Wetzel played some too.

There are some many things I would love to say about this article but it is not even worth it.

But I will say he never played basketball in Coudy, so to the people he just offended don't worry about it, and don't get mad at people from Coudy for his arrogance.

"Hatchet League". That brings back great memories. I can remember when Henry would call the boys together at the Crittenden for "training table" before the games. Gotta stay hydrated, you know? Hot Roddy Palmer suited up for one of those teams. When Pete Ryan came to town fresh out of playing college basketball they called him Pistol Pete and he was a good player in the league. That Dildine Road team from Northern Potter was pretty tough too -- run run full court press the whole time.
