In an earlier post, I talked about how the D-League had a player with the Los Angeles D-Fenders – Ryan Forehan-Kelly – being born Jan. 1, 1900. He was actually born Jan. 14, 1980.
Had a little fun with it, but all jokes aside, Forehan-Kelly did this thing against the Erie BayHawks today in the final day of the D-League Showcase in Boise, Idaho.
Forehan-Kelly scored a game-high 28 points as he went a ridiculous 11-of-12 from the field. The only shot he missed was a 3-pointer and that was half way in the rim before rattling out. He also grabbed 10 rebounds in the loss to Erie.
What’s even crazier is Dan Lynch, who graduated from Cathedral Prep in 1967, coached Forehan-Kelly’s AAU team back in the day. He left a comment on the post. Here it is:
Ryan was born in Long Beach California in 1980. He was raised in Irvine, California and attended Santa Margarita Cath. High School. The Ast Principal was an Erie gal named Mary Ann Dougherty.
I coached Ryan AAU, Club, Irvine Youth and Boys Club Leagues.
