Purple Pride acquires BallPress.com

11/21/2021 —

It's been 25 years since I created this site as a Father's Day gift for my dad, Frank Pitol, back in 1997. He was looking to update his book, The Wonderful World of Collinsville Basketball: 1908-1976, and I was working in IT developing websites and creating content. This project was the perfect opportunity to work on a project with my dad.

When Coach Lee contacted me about transferring the site to the Purple Pride Booster Club, I had to think about it. Afterall, I've worked on this site for a big chunck of my adult life. The more I thought about it, the more the transfer made sense. Turning over the reins to an organization that can keep the site going long after I'm gone will ensure the site survives.

I've updated a few things on my way out the door. Be sure to check out the Coaches section, where I added content from my dad's book to the pages from Coach Dee through Coach Fletcher. I've also posted a copy of my dad's Master's thesis, The History of Basketball of the Collinsville High School, on the Founders page. The thesis goes into more detail about each season through Collinsville's first State Champions in 1961. He submitted this as a partial requirement for his degree in May 1962... just a few months after I was born.

I've really enjoyed creating this site as a reference tool for my hometown and any fans out there of Kahok basketball. I know this site will be in good hands with Coach Lee and the Purple Pride's Mark Rimar.
