Prime Time in NL

Hawk Talk

Prime Time is back in North Liberty for its 27th year. It is the longest running summer league in the U.S. and the main reason is Randy Larson, who not only runs the league, but coaches as well.
I remember watching him as a player-coach when the league started.
Randy and I are the same age, so I’ve always been impressed with his energy and passion for Hawkeye basketball.
I went to some of those games at City High when the league first started. There were two gyms and they both were hot.
I saw Chris Street, Jess Settles and even former Hawkeye football player Willie Guy play.
