    Rock Island Rocks: Illinois 3A State Champs!!!

    So my HS won their first state championship after a number of 2nd place finishes over the years. The HS of Corey Jenkins, former UNI player, Danyell Robinson, former ISU assistant coach, Monte Jenkins, former SIU star, Pete Michael, former Cincy star who helped beat the Cyclones out in Vegas during the Fizer Tinsley era, and of course Legend Don Nelson has finally brought home a state Championship. For all the basketball fans in the Quad Cites, I hope it brings a smile to your face. Now if only the Cyclones could have snagged Chasson Randle instead of Stanford snagging him.

    Anyway Congrats Rocky!
    Rocky wins first state championship

    They had a great season. Chasson Randle is a class act, Stanford is getting one heck of a kid.

    This Moline alum was happy to cheer for the Rocks this time around. My nephew is a senior at RIHS.
