Fly Williams #1, Ray Lewis #2

In February 1973, Sports Illustrated ran an article about Brooklyn playground legend James “Fly” Williams as he was leading the country in scoring as a freshman for tiny Austin Peay U. in Tennessee. Second in scoring at that time was known other than Los Angeles all-time street king Raymond Lewis! They eventually met up at the famed UCLA old men’s gym run. Check out these vintage flicks courtesy of Dan The Man:

Peep the Fly Williams 1973 article at Sports Illustrated. You should also read a 1978 SI piece on Ray Lewis.
