"He was the nation's high scorer for the year, and he was an AllAmerican back in 18-. But this isn't why Rice should mention him today.

A Flock of Lonero's Eagles [Newspaper Article] — The Kent Stater — 13 December 1939
A Flock of Lonero's Eagles This group of likely looking men look as if they could hold their own. They make up Kent's next opponent, the Ashland college basketball team. They are: upper left, Virgil Scobey; center, Bob Shively; upper right, Robert Sprague; lower left, Coach "Tony" Lonero; lower right, Dutka. Last year the Eagles proved to be "pushovers" for the Starnmen as the Flashes scored two successive conference victories over them. This year, however, it proves to be a different story. Student opinion is of the "beware" nature. The team has been warned not to consider the Ashlandites too lightly.
