I'll never forget that turn around jump shot that Fred made at the top of the key with seconds ago to beat Sequoia our senior year. Fred was a thoughtful guy and he left us all to early.  I really liked Fred although he was difficult to know. As I remember it, his dad worked at Stanford. Fred was a very good basketball player and for sure one of the best on the team. He had a great outside shot. 

I looked at our 1963 Madrono and see that Fred's picture is reversed with that of Michael Pryzbla's photo.

I concur with Danny.  Fred was a pretty good b-ball player, probably the best on our

team at that time.  I remember the shot too! Was Jeff Cudworth playing for them at

that time?  Name seems to fit with Sequoia at that time? Yes Danny, his Dad did work 

at Stanford. He was a nuclear physicist or something like that? Really a smart guy!

Did he play ball after high school? I lost track of him after graduation. Complex guy!

I remember Fred's famous shot. But I remember it was from the corner. Man, what a beautiful shot that was. Fred shot his jumper with his hands close together and had this unbelievable release. I think you're right, Rick; Jeff Cudworth was playing in that game. I remember he had a fantastic hook shot. Fred was a good ball player and he did leave too soon.

Fred was definitely a sweet hoopster.  Never afraid to take the shot. We all remember Sequoia game. I know he went to Claremont and started as a freshman.  Freshmen were able to play in those days at the small schools.  But, dropped out as a soph, never knew exactly what happened.  I agree with Dan, a different guy, but once you knew him really nice guy with a great sense of humor
