BOB HAYDEN, Jimtown High School, 1945
Bob played basketball, baseball and track at Jimtown HS. He set the Elkhart County scoring record in 1945, when he scored 353 points in 24 games for a 14.7 average. Hayden helped lead Jimmies to the 1945 sectional championship and advanced to the regional title game. He was named to the all-tourney county and sectional teams in `45 and was selected captain and MVP of the Jimmies that same year. Bob has the distinction of being the first one-hand free throw shooter in the county (a suggestion from Coach Lowell Sheets, after he did so poorly with the then-popular two-hand, underhand style).
