Tyrone PA, Basketball Champs, 1915

Basketball Champions Posted by Picasa

Tyrone Pennsylvania keeps turning up, and here we have the Basketball Champs of 1914 - 1915 in a photo taken at Holtzinger's Studio in Tyrone PA (Blair County). The photographer, J. H. Holtzinger appears in the 1897 history of Tyrone done by the Reverend W. H. Wilson ... The Tyrone of To-Day, Gateway to the Alleghanies.

Please contact me if you can identify this team.

Added September 6, 2006: I've learned from the Tyrone e-Cafe that the names of two of these gentlemen may be Sam Hayes Sr. (probably Samuel Hayes Sr.) on the far left and Jess Templeton, the big guy in back (3rd from the left). Thanks Robbuck!
