Benjamin Russell-Coosa Central alumni game creates a buzz
ROCKFORD, Ala. —
Coosa Central got the win. Benjamin Russell's Terrell Owens got the dunk.
The second annual alumni basketball game between the Cougars and Wildcats lived up to expectations. For the second straight year, there appeared to be a capacity crowd. This year's game switched to Coosa Central High School and the home team scored a 69-67 overtime win in the guys game.
But the play of the night belonged to Terrell Owens, a 1992 graduate of Ben Russell. He's soon to be enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, but he was a dual-sport athlete in high school and college. He still has it in for rival Coosa-Central, throwing down a emphatic dunk in traffic during the first half.
