It's the early 70s in West Islip and St John the Baptist High School is gearing up for a crucial game against St. Agnes of Rockville Centre. But for freshman Mickey Quinn and the rest of the class of '75, the events of that night will reverberate beyond the court for years to come.

Today Mickey joins us to discuss Growing Up a Cougar, his account of that game, that night, and his years at SJB.

Special thanks to Fabio Montella.
