The movie about the 1976 Eastwood boys basketball state championship team, titled "March of the Troopers", premiered tonight at Bassett Place mall in El Paso. Members of the 1976 team were on hand, including head coach Bobby Leslie. The movie will run throughout the week at Bassett Place mall, with several showtimes throughout the day.
State Championship member Dean LaFever said of the premiere and movie on the team, "It's a positive movie, a positive team, what made us unique is that we played together. We were talking about it today, we didn't have all the talent in the world, but we played as a team, and no matter what your status was on the team, we all contributed and it was just the greatest experience in the world."
