Jim: While at Lindsey Wilson JC, Gordon Crump wrote for ACN
This is the earliest Gordon Crump bylined article I found in the Adair County News. It appeared in the Wednesday, December 15, 1948 edition of the paper, about a year and half after his arrival in Columbia. - JIM
L.W.J.C. Defeats Paducah for 5th Straight Win
by Gordon Crump
Lindsey Wilson again proved superior in strength and general playing ability, by defeating Paducah College by a score of 70-61 last Friday night.
In this, Lindsey's first home game, a near capacity crowd watched the Blue Raiders, piloted by Coach Joe Conforti, take their fifth consecutive win, against no losses.
Lindsey Wilson is the only Junior College in Kentucky to remain undefeated and holds the K.J.C.C. [Kentucky Junior College Conference] lead thus far.
The Paducah game was a virtual show case for the Blue Raiders. Besides showing the home fans what the Raiders can do, it gave a deserving young man from Scottsville, Gene Parrish, a chance to show his ability. Such regulars as Bill "Big 'Un" Kelley, Lowell Regg, and Bob Langley, played their usual good game as did the entire Blue Raider team.
Lindsey faces perhaps the toughest of all conference foes next Friday night at Lindsey, namely Pikeville College, who will be trying for an upset.
