When Clem Worosz was a kid growing up in Dunkirk in the 1940s, he found his way to South Roberts Road - the west side of the avenue to be exact - where there was a large tree. Nailed to it was a bushel basket, sans backboard.

The width of the road was the court.

A basketball career was born.

To say the young Worosz got off to a fast start in the sport, however, would be an overstatement. In fact, when he tried out for his Catholic Youth Organization team, Worosz was told that he would never make it as a basketball player.

Guess who had the last laugh?
