Blue Ridge Cable finally uploaded the full game video of Kobe Bryant’s one and only appearance at Martz Hall in Pottsville.

Kobe’s Lower Merion Aces took on the Stroudsburg Mounties in the Class 4A Eastern Semifinals.

Loyal fans of the team and a huge local crowd filled Martz Hall on the afternoon of March 16, 1996 to check out the kid who’d become arguably the greatest basketball player in NBA history.

They didn’t leave disappointed that day, either. Kobe went off for 36 points as the Aces moved past Stroudsburg. They’d eventually become PIAA Class 4A champions, the only state championship in Kobe’s time at Lower Merion High School.

Blue Ridge Cable just uploaded this full game video on Feb. 7. It’s quite the flashback. You may even recognize a few local faces in the crowd, too.
