Are you the Jim Capers that was on the 6th Armored Cavalry Regiment basketball team in Germany in 1955-1956? I am a Seattle U. graduate (ROTC) & was assigned to the unit then. We had Frank Selvy & were rated as one of the best military teams ever. I think you went to Xavier College in Louisiana — it was an all-black Jesuit college at that time. I’ve seen you & your son ref in the NBA many times.
