Part 2 of a 5 Part Series

Mickey FisherClarksville, TN – Mickey Fisher came out of Clarksville High School as one of the best basketball players Clarksville had ever seen.  We had come to expect that he would play college ball somewhere, and with the history his family had with Austin Peay State University, the assumption was that he would play in Clarksville. According to his mother, Myra, he had been offered a scholarship to Jacksonville, but chose to stay in Clarksville and play for the Governors.

It was a delicate situation with his father, George Fisher, still coaching at APSU, and his mother working there as well. Myra Fisher told me, “We hoped it was alright, and that people didn’t see it as a problem, but Mickey knew that he wasn’t going to get any favors, and would have to work hard and earn his spot on the team.”
