We are honoring three men that helped mold the Parkway South Basketball program into the program it currently is by introducing the Basketball Wall of Fame. These individuals are being honored because of their efforts, play, sportsmanship, and dedication both on and off the court. Jim Radtke, Tremayne Garret, and Ben Hoener will be the first Wall of Fame class. Each will have a plaque displayed outside of Gym A in their honor.
Jim was the first head coach at Parkway South and was instrumental in making the Patriots Boys Basketball Program a top program in the St. Louis area. He coached from 1976 until he retired in 1999, a total of 23 seasons. Jim was one of the first coaches in the area to make a feeder program for future Patriots called South Area Basketball (later called the Junior Patriots).
