GCBLA legend


The idea for the GCBLA was initially discussed during a conversation between, Skip Young, current President, and his friend, John "Pineapple" Lewis, who thought it was necessary to record the history of the basketball legends from Franklin and surrounding counties.  Skip shared this idea with other former players and they envisioned that the organization would emphasize the impact of basketball on the Ohio community, be responsible for telling their own story, and help the younger generation of athletes in their academic and athletic careers.

GCBLA primary objective has  been to construct a Hall Of Fame Legends Museum, that would serve as a gatekeeper for the game of basketball in the Greater Columbus Metropolitan area and surrounding counties. The museum would preserve the basketball achievements of men and women at all levels of  the sport, by preserving artifacts, photos, and memorabilia. This would assist to serve as a catalyst to create an educational and mentoring initiative for youth.​
