Bluefield Trio Takes Floor Together For Final Time

BECKLEY, W.Va. (WVVA) -- The legacy of excellence left behind by Bluefield's senior class of basketball players is one that won't be easily replicated: three straight state championship appearances, two straight state titles. They've been fun to watch and this past weekend, three members of that class took the floor together for probably the last time.

Michael Yost, Lykel Collier and Anthony Eades were all part of the class "AA" team at the Scott Brown Classic. Their head coach - Bluefield's Buster Large - was in charge of the "AA" squad as well.

"I've been around them for four years and we've had a lot of good times together," Large said. "Those good times are memories that will last a lifetime."

Large said he was always impressed with this class' work ethic, even when times were hard.

"They've worked hard in developing their game and that's what it takes to be a good basketball player," Large said. "You have to work at everything you do."
