In 1967, a suburban Toronto basketball team swept all competition aside with a slashing type of game never before seen in local basketball circles. This is the story of a small high school’s team on the margins of Toronto that became virtually unbeatable. It was undefeated in over 40 games and rated Number One in Toronto; many believed it was the best high school basketball team in Canada. For the seven players and the coach, the season was a once-in-a-lifetime event that would never be duplicated. Fifty years later the team’s coach, Ted Schmidt, asked the six living players to reflect on that historic season. Their stories are both revealing and poignant.
