If you were to pick the top 5 drill team members of all time - not just recently, but over the entire history of the sport - who you feel to be the most influential to the sport, and who had the greatest impact on the sport - the "legends", you might say - who would you choose?
Off the bat, I'm told Wilbur Young should be on that list...but also who else?
Pat Jeffares.....racer/Hempstead Flukes/N Lindenhurst Piston Knockers...drill official....keeper and preserver of this sports history and the knowledge passed to him by many different sources from many eras through the years....and he continues to see that it lives on.....by passing it along
SWAMP FEVER?...DAM IF I KNOW WHERE IT IS..I'M NEW AROUND THESE PARTS MYSELF

Paul Jordan - Climber ( Merrick Outlaws & W. Hempstead Westerners) Great and extremely consistent tournament day climber in B & C Ladder has to be ranked in top 5 climbers in racing history. State record of 9.01 in C Ladder was probably the first 8 ever run in that event according to video footage. Most of all a great friend and teamate who will always be missed.
