An Update from Reynolds’ Basement

May 20, 2009
By Chris Richter


Tim Peeler ’87 is spending the summer with a student intern and a couple of NC State student-athletes going through the treasures (including this photo) that have been stored in the basement of Reynolds Coliseum. He’s getting some help, too, from Tor Ramsey ’90, a former manager for the basketball team who’s now a filmmaker. In today’s post, Tim tells of some of the great film Ramsey has turned up:

He found a film canister that contained the four-overtime game against Canisius in the 1956 NCAA Tournament, perhaps the most disappointing loss of [Everett] Case’s career.

He found a Pilot Life production of highlights from the 1970 ACC Championship game against South Carolina, and reports that Eddie Leftwich’s steal from Bobby Cremins – the pivotal defensive play of the contest – is in near-perfect condition.

Keep an eye out for Tim’s updates. He’s on Twitter. And if you know any of the folks in the picture above, tell us in the comments. Tim has already ID’d Case, Ronnie Shavlik ’60, Earle Edwards, Dick Christy ’61 and Vic Sorrell ’26.
