Hello Dear Reader,
By November 8, 1935 the Herald was featuring basketball instead of football. Grandpa (Wes) Carter was mentioned as chief among the sophomore players. Another sophomore player from Dixon Junior High was Gordon Mitchell who was in our ward. Both were considered very good players.

In Wes’s history he said he played varsity football and basketball for Provo High his sophomore year. I previously mentioned that he played some football for the varsity team but I have not been able to find proof that he actually played basketball on anything other than the sophomore team. That’s not to say that he wasn’t a substitute in some of the regular games. He was a great basketball player.
