Two of his players were featured in Hoop Dreams which I thought was the best sports’ movie ever made.

Pingatore’s record may never be passed.
The other pjstar article (not one linked above) states that Ping passed Dick Van Scyoc. Passing Van Scyoc didn’t get Ping the Illinois record. That was held by Steve Goers. Ping passed Goers in 2012 following Goers’ retirement the previous season.

Neil Alexander currently places 3rd after passing Van Scyoc this past season.
