SHARE Video: Weber Shootout tradition has previous history

After writing about the second annual Weber Shootout between Gordon Tech and Nazareth earlier this month, Weber grad Shay Boyle, an assistant coach at Notre Dame, emailed that Gordon Tech has been playing annual games at old Weber High School for much longer than the Nazareth series.

Gordon Tech played Immaculate Conception at Weber four years ago and Gordon played Montini three years ago. Like Nazareth coach John Bonk’s former roots as a Weber coach, then-Immaculate Conception A.D. Darren Howard and Montini coach Brian Opoka were Weber grads, Boyle reports.

Boyle is a former head coach at Gordon for four years.

“We actually hosted an entire regional at Weber due to a conflict at GT in my third year there,” Boyle said. “I played for coach Bonk at Weber on the Sweet 16 teams in ’94. A lot of proud Weber alums are still involved in hoops. It’s the best gym in the city and a great tradition. I hope to have ND play there as well to be a part of this celebration of Weber.”
