averaged 15.7 points a game and led the Toledo Area Athletic Conference in rebounding with a 12.3 average.

The 6-1 forward, a first-team All-Press and All-District 7 selection, also played football for four years and played baseball his freshman and senior year.

Northwood football coach Ken James, who was also Donegan's coach at the time, has always been a big believer in an offseason weightlifting program.
