WHS Class of 1951
Little Known Honor for Winslow’s Dick Farley: Submitted by Hugh Schaefer, Basketball Historian, who has often provided this website with interesting basketball stories : Back in 1949 and 1950 when Winslow and Terre Haute had outstanding teams, with outstanding players, Winslow’s Dick Farley, and Terre Haute having outstanding twins, Arley and Harley Andrews. All of Indiana knew about these three outstanding players. Four years later in 1954, there was a family that lived west of Farmersburg, IN in Sullivan county, Mr. & Mrs. Carter Drake. and also basketball fans that had triplet boys. who named their three triplets, FARLEY (for Dick Farley); ARLEY (for Arley Andrews), and HARLEY (for Harley Andrews). Winslow and Farmersburg were in the 1954 regional but did not play each other. This was a pretty big deal to have a baby named after you in this manner. Sixty years ago this year. Dick Farley was an alumni of Winslow High School in 1950 and also played basketball for IU and the Detroit Pistons.

The Winslow Eskimos from Winslow High School, Winslow, Indiana have been around since 1911 and were in existence until end of school year 1974.
Your help has made www.jddedman.com and www.winsloweskimos.com one of the most popular basketball information websites on the Winslow Eskimos on the internet. Your loyalty means a lot. We hope to continue it here with www.winsloweskimos.com. This Official Winslow Eskimo website shall always be dedicated to the Alumni of Winslow High School, their basketball players, cheerleaders, coaches, teachers, and friends who helped make little small Winslow a big name in Indiana High School basketball for many years.
There are no words to express our sorrow for the loss of this great Winslow Eskimo. John David Dedman has kept WHS alive in the hearts and memories of so many Eskimos for years. His work on this website has been tremendous. From the IHSAA to the grandchild of an Eskimo, John’s work on the glory days before class basketball and the WHS alumni has been read far and wide. Cary and I plan to keep the spirit of John in our hearts and carry on with the webpage to the best of our abilities and they way John would have wanted it. ~ Feb 2018
