Someday the videos will surface. They are highlight videos from the golden era of high school basketball in Colorado — 1995-98, in the Denver Metro League — on VHS tape. They show Denver Christian's No. 11, the point guard, a sublime mix of peak Bobby Hurley and pre-NBA Kenny Anderson, leading the Crusaders to a pair of league titles, a Class 3A state championship game and an undefeated record against the afterthoughts from Kent Denver.
But until my high school highlight videos hit the mainstream, we'll have prep coverage in the Gazette. My sports columns from the week of May 10-17 were heavy on preps:
—Cheyenne Mountain girls tennis won its seventh-straight state title, and the Indians shouldn't apologize for their dominance.
—James Irwin (and future Air Force) sprinter Miguel Molas wraps his high school career with a third-straight state title — and a knot in his stomach.
