To the Editor:
Regarding Ukiah/Long Creek basketball: Why wasn't Ben Combs given some recognition in the High Desert League for being a really good player? I watched most of the games. Ben gave 100% and accomplished a lot (rebounds, points, steals). He was a team player. He played the whole game, every game, until he broke his right hand and still played left handed.
We had people from the games telling us they loved watching Ben play and people from the opposing team complementing Ben on being such a good player.
