Randy from Enid has been playing lately at Black Gold, Remington Park and this weekend at AAA on tenth st. Nice fellow.Wow, what a thread. I knew I should've started paying more attention to this place a long time ago, lol. I've hardly screwed a cue together in about 4 years or so but I'm starting to get the bug again.
I haven't read the whole thing but saw some of the OK player related posts and a few folks came to mind.
Tom Schultz (RIP), otherwise known as Tommy Tucker or just Tucker. Played in the 60's, 70's, and early 80's. He ran around with Norman Hitchcock but mostly stayed out of the tournies and concentrated more on the practice rooms. He put the cue down for several years then picked it up again in the early 90's. Godzilla stroke. Cancer got him.
I used to see Driller play some pretty pool in OKC.
Someone mentioned Larry Humphries. If memory serves he's actually from Duncan, not Lawton. Haven't seen or heard of him in forever.
A couple of guys came through in about '91 or so from Colo. Springs. Older of the two, maybe late forties, called himself The Cowboy claimed to own a poll room up there, and the younger known as Andre. We took 'em for a little bit and never saw 'em again.
Jr. Brown was mentioned earlier, he definitely was NOT an unknown in KS and OK.
Donnie Brown was in OK a bunch in the 90's, no idea what happened to him.
Anybody know of Cricket that used to live around Enid? He kept a really low profile. How about Randy Estes?
Anyone know of a hustler from Kentucky (I think) name Rusty. A horse rancher brought him out to OK around 93 or so. Only played as good as he had to in order to win. No idea how good he actually could shoot, but it was always just good enough.
Anyone ever hear of Terry Porter? He is an older fella from my hometown in Muscatine, Iowa. The way people talk he was a great player back in his day. I believe he grew up in southern Missouri as a kid. Any info or stories would be great to hear.
is chuck morgan the player who's main thing was the horse track?
Saw Donnie Brown a few days ago at a little pool hall around here. Drunk as a skunk and offering almost anyone in the bar the 6 out wild and the breaks for 50 a game. Finally got a pretty good player to bite and wound up beating him for 5 or 6 games. Guy never plays pool anymore and can still offer up that kind of weight, pretty impressive. And always entertaining.
