The Score Book continued...

The following athletes also played varsity basketball at Mineral. Unfortunately the yearbooks they are listed in do not have individual stats. Some players on the list only have partial stats because of this. Anyone willing to research the information through the Kewanee Star Courier, Moline Dispatch, or Bureau County Republican (Princeton), can do so and forward it to me. I will update the list appropriately. The top twenty could change dramatically if this were done.

1938-39: Francis Foes, Morris Foes, Herb Gingrich, Charles Hasbrook, Tracey Humphrey, Harold Jenkins, Stanley Lyon, Howard Notschalele, Herb Pierson, Robert Rodgers,

1958-59: Gerald DePauw, Gerald Foes, Roger Lorenson, Oris Miller, Dave Moon, Roger Nutter, Jerry Sierens, Ken Sierens, Lonnie Turner, Bill Winefordner

1959-60: Eldon Croegaert, Gerald Foes, Roger Lorenson, Dave Moon, Roger Nutter, Dick VanKerrebroeck 

1960-61: Eldon Croegaert, Gerald Foes, Ronnie Heston, Dick Landsiedel, Don Maas, Doug Miller, Jim Peter, Gary Rakestraw, John Rieder, Dick VanKerrebroeck
