A couple of varsity basketball players were holding a dunk contest when the Muskegon High football team’s starting right tackle lumbered into the gymnasium.
The players passed a basketball to the lineman along with a challenge: Dunk the ball! Dunk it!
Anthony Bradford, already a towering 6-foot-5, 355-pounds as a sophomore, eyed the goal. Although he played center for the sub-varsity teams, he’d never dunked before.
