MONTGOMERY COUNTY SPORTS: "The Last County Championship" book signings this week

By Candice Rohrman
Sports Editor

The Linden High School basketball team won the final Montgomery County Basketball Championship 40 years ago in 1971. The final championship might be one that many remember, but now there is a book to commemorate the team.

The Last County Championship, written by Linden coaches Thomas Speaker and DL White, is the story of the Linden Bulldogs winning the 1971Montgomery County Championship.

Speaker was the head coach of that team and White was an assistant.

Speaker has written several books, including one on the 2008 West Lafayette State Championship football team. The two thought that since it was the 40-year anniversary that the book would be nice for the memories, White said.

The book is also dedicated to the parents of all the seniors on the 1971 squad and will feature some memories from former players as well.

The radio broadcast play-by-play is also utilized in the book.

"It's nice for Linden fans," White said. "And basketball fans would probably like it too."

White said that his and Speaker's book has a more specific appeal than many of the other basketball books that have been written on Montgomery County over the years.

Copies of the book can be purchased at the Carnegie Museum or one of the two upcoming book signings.

The first book signing will be held at the Linden Library on Thursday, from 6-8 p.m. The second signing will be at the Crawfordsville Public Library from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. on Saturday.

The public is encouraged to attend either of the signings to discuss the last county tournament and any basketball memories they might have from it.
