Beck skates to first

From the Prescott Journal, Nov. 27, 1985

 Prescott’s Barry Bekkedam has announced that he will accept a scholarship to play for the defending national champion Villanova Wildcats in the fall. The 6’10” forward played junior basketball for the South Grenville Giants and then transferred to Archbishop Carroll High School in Philadelphia last year. Bekkedam, who was actually cut from the South Grenville Midget team in Grade 9, had 157 scholarship offers from colleges in the United States.
