I spent the afternoon listening, talking and photographing Bill “Flash” Flanagan in his home surrounded by over 250 framed photo’s decorating his walls. A true legendary figure known in Illinois and all over the country. He has photo’s autographed by legends Al McGuire, Michael Jordan, Derrick Rose, Dean Smith, Gene Smithson, Ron Ferguson, Shaun Livingston, Joe DiMaggio and numerous legends in basketball and sports history. Flash was born February 23, 1941 and was an all-state football player at Avon High School. A highly successful college assistant coach at Illinois State and Wichita State University. Today he evaluates high school basketball players throughout the state for his Hoops Review scouting service.
