Innerviews: Hometown basketball hero Curtis Price returns to his roots

He's one of the Kanawha Valley's most celebrated and beloved athletes, a star on the undefeated 1968 Charleston High state championship team who went on to excel at WVU.

Curtis Price continued his success story at West Virginia State as a 21-year-old head basketball coach, probably the youngest in the country.

Also an accomplished musician, he played guitar in dance bands all through school, later with Ivor Sheff in the Production Company.
