Throwback Thursday: High School Boys Basketball Teams

In recognition of the 2018 NSAA State Boys Basketball Championships beginning today, this week's Throwback Thursday features photographs of multiple Nebraska high school boys basketball teams through the years.

This photograph depicts unidentified members and coaches of the Omaha Central High School basketball team. We have no specific date for this photo, but it is believed to have been taken between 1920 and 1930.

The oldest of these photos, this depicts the Lincoln High School basketball team circa 1907.

This picture postcard depicts the 1940-1941 Henry High School basketball team with their coach, Mr. Burrows.

Mr. Burrows is joined by a different set of players for the 1942 Henry High School basketball team photo. 

 

Here, the boys basketball team of Elgin Public School in Elgin, Nebraska pose for a portrait.
