I've known Dale Moeller for more than thirty years and not until recently did I realize that he was a member of the 1954 Aurora Red Devils basketball team. The same team that defeated Milan's Miracle Men in the '54 regular season. The same team that won four consecutive Sectional titles and was ranked #9 in the state. And, the same team that won more than 20 games but would lose to the Indians in the Regional Final. In the ensuing years, some of those very same Milan players have told Dale that Aurora was the one team they truly feared - the one team that stood in the way of their march to the title. A march that would not be denied. CGS.
