Meilke's Gryphon All-Star's 1985- 2009

First Team All-Star's

Name

 

Guard

Alex Brainis

Cool under pressure, a 3 when you really needed it.

Guard

Richard Weslowski

Best defensive guard the Gryphons have had, a great off balance shooter, he could drive or shoot the 3.

Forward

Mike Ananbadejo

Mike is the Gryphons all time leading scorer, in spite of being double and triple teamed in most of his games. Impossible to stop when he was close to the basket, you could count on 20 points and 10+ rebounds every night he played.  

Forward 

Tim Mau

There is only one "Chairman"

Center

Eric Hammond

How many university players have had a gym named after them? He packed the "House of Slam" and played above the rim.

6th Man

Paul Eldridge

6'10" and he could shoot from any place on the court, made his free throws when the game was on the line and was a very tough match-up.

 

 

 

Second Team All-Star's

 

 

Guard

Chris O'Rourke

Channel 11 gave him the nick name "The Coffin Maker" - now Gryphon players call him Coach.

Guard

Darren Thomas

Small, exciting, fast, deadly.

Forward

Rene Luyparet

A tough competitor, rebounder, defender.

Forward 

Brent Barnhart

Fake left, turn right, make jumper. Ally-oop from O'Rourke-count it.

Center

Rob Henry

Has forgotten post moves the others never had and he could hit the foul line jump shot.

6th Man

Kyle Julius

Perhaps the best pure scorer the Gryphon's have had, never afraid to take the tough shot.

Always wanted to take the big shots, he had ice water in his veins and a smile on his face.
