Bad Boyz

These guys were bad, as in loud, intense, in your face and maybe a little crazy. They were also an outstanding Top Men's Team that won approximately 30 Macker tournaments and according to Gus "shocked the world" winning the always tough Peoria title in 1995. Team members included Cedric Wynn, Artese Simmons, Ernest Walker, Mike Hidden, Mike Ayers and Lester Hubbard. They hailed from the Rockford, Ill., area. The best descriptive line on them from their 2008 induction into the Macker Hall of Fame is that they started in Mackers as a young, overmatched group of arguing players and ended up being a tight-knit, talented group of arguing players.
