Ontario Euclid Alum here. Madge's kid Jimmy was the pe coach during my 10th grade year.

Dig this jive:

- - -
In 1983 the family of former basketball coach Jim Blake established a memorial scholarship fund in his honor, entrusting the Alumni Association to administer the fund and to select a recipient annually.

This scholarship is for student-athletes--those who demonstrate superior athletic ability in addition to academic excellence.

The Jim Blake Memorial Scholarship Fund is increased each year by contributions from alumni, the family of Coach Blake, and the proceeds of the varsity/alumni basketball game held in December in the basketball gym on campus.
