Ray Harper, The Man, The Player, The Coach

The Man

Ray grew up in a supportive and loving family. The devotion to the family unit is something that Ray learned at an early age. He had a uniquely close relationship with his father. This relationship instilled toughness, compassion, the will to succede, and the drive to never give up. Ray and Lilburn Harper were very close as father and son.

As the family tree would grow within the Harper family, so did their love for one another...

The Player

While playing basketball for Bremen, Ray scored three-thousand and thirty-three points as a four-year starter. He earned first-team all-state honors his senior season and was named district player of the year.

With the support of his family, Harper signed with the Univerisity of Texas for coaching legend Abe Lemons.
