The Last Word
As the court was cleared and the celebration moved into the lower hallway of the Devaney Sports Center, the prevailing emotion of the Wahoo basketball community was one of relief. Smiles and hugs abounded as players and coaches mingled with family, friends and well-wishers, repeatedly exchanging the sentiment, “We did it. We really did it!” While the 1990 team had experienced a similar feeling of relief after having persevered through a season with the expectation of a third state title, there was even more of a sense of finality for the 1991 team. As Steve Volin put it, “We can enjoy it for good now. We don’t have to worry about the next game. So many times we couldn’t enjoy the win because we had to prepare for the next game or the next year.” Perhaps because this team was so dominated by the four seniors, there was the impression that this was an ending. It was more of a time of looking back than looking forward, although there were some references to the burden of continuing the winning streak. Bernie Inbody commented, “It will be up to the other guys next year. They are the ones that are going to have to deal with the expectations.”

The individual achievements for the ‘90-’91 season were remarkable. For their performances at the state tournament, both Jason Glock and Bernie Inbody were named to the Class B All Tournament team; Glock was not only selected to the All Class All Tournament team, but was named its honorary captain. When All State selections were announced, Ryan Eddie was listed as Second Team, Class B while Glock was not only First Team, Class B, but also First Team Super State and again, the honorary captain. Eddie and Glock were both First Team Capitol Conference, while Steve Volin and Inbody were named to the Second Team. The team achievements were the obvious Class B State Title and #1 ranking. The Warriors were also acknowledged by the Omaha World Herald as the 4th best team overall. The team owned the most consecutive wins (90) of any basketball team in state history, and it was the highest scoring team (89 point average) to ever win a state title. Jason Glock set the state record for career points in the state tournament (260) and Bernie Inbody set the record for most three point goals in a tournament (12). The 1990 - 1991 squad’s 89 point average was the best ever for a Wahoo team and the largest winning margin for a season (43.3 average). Jason Glock claimed school records in scoring for the season (779), and for a career (2167). Glock also claimed the career rebound record (889) and Ryan Eddie became the best in career 3 point field goals (138).

The impressive resume posted by the 1991 team led to discussion of this team perhaps being one of the best Nebraska high school basketball teams in history. It had clearly dominated Class B and was recognized as capable of competing with the Class A teams. As he had done before, Coach Anderson acknowledged that Wahoo “would have had our share of losses” if competing in Class A. But he also noted that the Warriors had been able to win the Nike Summer League the past two years where they faced mostly Class A competition. And he also pointed out that Wahoo “would have improved, playing tougher competition.”

Eventually the celebration of the accomplishments of the 1991 team began to fade and some did start to look forward. More so than in the previous couple of years there were major question marks for the Wahoo lineup. Jeff Simons, a returning starter, would be joined by fellow junior Trent Toline and sophomore Joel Weyand as the only players with significant varsity time. But before relegating the upcoming squad to being just a “contender,” one had to consider what Jeff Simons pointed out in a post season interview: “the javee team lost just one game this season and were undefeated last year.” And those in the know in Wahoo would also suggest the Warriors might get a boost from a high scoring freshman duo of Mike Hancock and Travis Toline. Hancock had set a school record, scoring 52 points in a freshman game. But Coach Anderson was well aware of the talent that was leaving: “Next year I’ m sure I’ll look around and wonder where they (the four seniors) are. Those are four guys I’m really going to miss.”

In his annual scrapbook for the team, Coach Anderson pointed the way for the 1992 team in his written message: “You must not be satisfied with what we have done in the past -- the only thing that counts now is what happens next year.” But in the moment of the 90th win, the fourth consecutive title, Coach Anderson allowed that “We know -- and believe me, the seniors had a big sigh of relief Saturday night -- that the streak won’t last forever.” It remained to be seen, just how close to “forever” the next year’s squad could push that win streak. In the midst of those sighs of relief came voices of satisfaction. Ryan Eddie: “There were people out there that didn’t think we could make it through the year without getting beat. ... It is just hard to explain right now, but it feels great.” Jason Glock: “It has been an unbelievable ride.”
