Coopen's Whoopin' Hoopers

Coopen's Whoopin' Hoopers

No doubt about who won as coach Coopen Johnson’s 1959-60 Esko High School basketball team prepared for the bus trip home after a road game. The Eskomos had a lot of post-game celebrations that season; they were undefeated in 20 games until losing the District 26 championship to Morgan Park, 69-67. In front, from left, are Bob Vukelich, Dave Johnson and, partially shown, Dick Sorenson. Others visible are Joe Richey, far left; Rod Juntunen, center; Frank Liupakka (behind Johnson) and, immediately behind and above Liupakka, Dave Sjoblad.  Five players --- Vukelich, Johnson, Juntunen, Sjoblad and Bruce Maki --- were named to the all-conference team that season and Liupakka received honorable mention.
