Many of us will remember Kimball's basketball coach Orr (there only in 67-68). Now head coach (for many years) @ Navarro College in Corsicana, he was injured seriously in van accident Monday evening driving his basketball team back from a game in Paris. Two of his players were killed and two more were Care Flighted to Dallas.
In a spare moment we might want to send good thoughts his way. Aside from his own injuries (which we certainly hope he fully recovers from) I'm sure he's devastated over the deaths of his players. - gnb
From Coach Rust:
Yes, I was there when Lewis was coaching at Kimball........I saw that in the paper today too........It is the same Coach Orr that we all knew....what a tragedy, he was in the van that got hit--he is a lucky person not to have been injured/killed.
