Max Woolsey to be honoredLinton Daily Citizen - NewsMax Woolsey to be honoredMax Woolsey has a special place in Linton basketball history by being the only Miner ever named to the Indiana All-Star Team.Woolsey will have a special night Saturday when Linton pays tribute to one of the best players to ever wear a Miner uniform.Woolsey, who now lives in Daleville, will be honored in a special ceremony at halftime of the varsity game between Linton and North Knox."It's very nice of them to do this," said Woolsey.Woolsey joined the Merchant Marines during the war effort and left Linton before his junior season.He returned to school following his service and graduated in 1945.Woolsey admits that being named to the All-Star Team was not something which had ever crossed his mind."I was kind of surprised when I got picked," he said."I knew a little bit about the All-Stars, but they hadn't been doing it for very long."Most of Woolsey's All-Star teammates were from Evansville, Muncie, Indianapolis, Kokomo and South Bend.Details of the game, which Indiana lost 45-40 in Indianapolis, have escaped Woolsey, but he does remember preparing for the game."What stands out in my mind more than anything is that we practiced all week with a laced ball, but we ended up playing with a molded ball," Woolsey said with a laugh."They cut me before the season started," Woolsey recalled.That didn't mean it was time for Woolsey to join the work force.He traveled for a time with the Harlem Globetrotters, playing for the Boston Whirlwinds, which then played the role of today's Washington Generals as the team which lost to the Globetrotters every night."It was a lot of fun," Woolsey fondly recalled."We traveled to South America and I played with a lot of great guys like Marcus Haynes and Goose Tatum."After touring with the Globetrotters, Woolsey went back to college and earned a teaching degree.He taught physical education and industrial arts and got involved in coaching.He began his coaching career in Brockton, Ill., then came back to Indiana where he spent time at both Odon and Linton.He was Linton's head basketball coach for three years and also served as an assistant football coach.He later taught and coached at Daleville and within the Muncie school system, retiring in 1988.Woolsey is one of 11 Indiana All-Stars from SWIAC schools.
