If you’ve been in Oregon a while, you’ve probably heard about arguably the most phenomenal basketball team in the history of the state, tiny Bellfountain High. In 1937, David smote Goliath in Oregon’s version of the movie “Hoosiers.” Back then, all basketball teams competed in the same division. Bellfountain, a school of 27 total students, beat Franklin of Portland (2,100 students) in the state semifinals, then beat Lincoln of Portland (1,728 students) for the championship.

Blind Boy Fuller
"I'M A RATTLESNAKIN' DADDY"
I think Fuller was one of my favorite music artists of the 30's. He wrote several songs that were indicative of the times.
Hopefully we will be able to get permission to use some of his music.
