  • 26. Jan. 20, 2012 — MOUNTAINEER 27Intramuraltitle upfor grabs Story and photo by Walt Johnson Mountaineer staff The 2012 Fort Carson intramural basketball season is onlyin its second week but there are already signs that this will be ayear to remember when it is over in late March. Anyone who has seen the intramural league play this year willbe impressed with the talent level and the overall play of most ofthe teams. For the past two years that wasn’t the case as Old School,the two-time defending champions, was the class of the league. So dominant was Old School that the intramural league herewas contested for one reason. It was not to determine who thechampions would be, that was going to be Old School, andeveryone knew it. The league was being played to see who wouldbe the team that had the honor of losing to Old School in thechampionship game. Old School was led by the terrific trio of Ed Jackson, KennethMcKinley and Antonio Green, but make no mistake about it,there was much more to this team than those three players. OldSchool was loaded with talented, smart and fundamentally soundplayers throughout its roster which made defeating them aslikely as a lunar eclipse. The reason Old School was able to put together the team itdid was because Jackson, McKinley and Green did not have aunit team to play with, so they were allowed to enter the players’pool. This year there is a team representing Old School, butJackson, McKinley and Green are playing with other teams, whichhas spread out the talent, providing a more competitive balance. In the past two years there was no question who the favoriteswere to win the intramural title. This year the question is whowill be the last two teams standing and who will succeed Old An intramural basketball player launches a jump shot during intramural basketball actionSchool as the post champions.
