Re(4): Best players never to play in the USA?

Posted on July 1, 2007 at 03:20:19 PM by Carlos

My vote is for Alex Hormaechea. He is the son of Tampa Great 'Francisco'. Franky's son is really good, and it is a shame that he has not come to America to play yet. I believe that after talking with Franky he has told his son that he should not believe the hip, and that you will not get rich by going to the states. Alot of the young players in the late 70's and 80's came over with that idea,(Including myself) and we were mis-led.I am glad to see players like Alex playing in Euzkadi, and staying there to play.High CESTA to you Alex.
Francisco has two step sons as well. Kevin, who has proven himself in the past in Euzkadi as well. David (Almike II) professional stint was only for 5 years as a pro, and he is now living in San Diego, and working for Sony as a Computer Engineer for many years.
