Jumping into the new year–no pun intended–the Bengals of 1996 show off how it’s done. Pictured is Carson Egland, a 1998 LHS graduate, showing his menacing jump shot against an opponent. .

The photograph holds more story than just a 6’ 8” guy with a tall vertical. The picture shows the Bengals breaking their losing streak, and pushing against all odds betted against them to finally obtain a winning score over Sandpoint.

Egland scored three consecutive possessions amidst an 18-5 run finishing the third quarter, according to the 1996 Bengal’s Purr. His technique won the game, and thus ended up qualifying the team for a rematch against Pendleton.
