The KYA Radio Oneders
Team Photo, 1967
The 1967 KYA Radio Oneders finished the season 59-1 over their faculty opponents, aided by the presence of future Hall of Famer (and future KNBR host) Rick Barry, who was sitting out the season after attempting to jump leagues from the NBA San Francisco Warriors to the ABA Oakland Oaks. It may have also helped to bring along their own referees…
Back row, left to right: Referee Owen Kashaveroff (El Camino High School athletic director), Jim Myers (KYA salesman), Norm Goldsmith (KYA salesman), Rick Barry (pro basketball star), Don Novitsky (Oceana High School basketball coach), Phil Pruski (KYA salesman), referee Mike Orlich (Jefferson High School athletic director).

Really cool to see this. I found an old recording of Johnny Holliday’s show from October 1967 and wondered (ha) about the Oneders.
