Personal Quote:

People ask me about the NBA and I just figure there's no use thinking about it. What's done is done. (When drafted by the NBA Philadelphia Warriors, Bevo declined to play professional ball, and spent twenty years working in a steel mill instead.)


Inducted into the University of Rio Grande Athletic Hall of Fame in 1973 (inaugural class). See more »
