One of Larry's most memorable high school memories was an ironic one – being sent to the principals office and the celebrity status that it brought – It started with the “school wide” announcement – Larry Cotter please report to Mr. Phillips office – Larry Cotter please report to the principals office but it didn’t end there – they must have announced it ten times – so wondering what he did he finally went to the office. Fortunately for Larry it was a nice little thank you gift from Mr. Phillips for coaching his son Greg on the youth basketball team.

Jim McAteer cube linkedin twitter

Illinois Territory Manager

Jim has been with The Cube since the beginning. His focus is on helping schools get their school cube up and running. From getting equipment to starting a school's broadcast club. Jim has worked in media for more than 20 years with an extensive background in high school sports. Jim lives in Beverly where he can be found baby sitting for 10 nephews and nieces all close by.

Jim played football at Marian Catholic and let's just say he wasn't going to win any awards for his play on the field. But his teammates enjoyed Jim's play-by-play commentary during practice. Jim would describe each play in practice like he was calling a game. As you could imagine - it probably wore on the head coach. After probably biting his tongue for a while, Head Coach Dave Mattio said to me, "Could you either please keep it down or bring your announcing over to the other side of the field - away from me." An early sign back in the day where I should be - not on the field.

One of Eric's favorite memories at Friendswood was a the yearly occurrence of taking group yearbook photos for all the clubs and sports. In his sophomore year, accompanied by a friend, Eric and went snuck into as many group photos as they could manage. Thinking nothing of it but thoroughly enjoying the passive photo-bombing they came to find out that they got listed as being a part of each group. Never before had two people been so diverse in their interests at FHS. The tradition continued over the next 2 years, but beside our printed names listed by each club/sport was an asterix.
