Curtis Black returns home to lead Roosevelt basketball

Curtis Black was happy at Stow.

But there was no way the Roosevelt alum could turn down a chance to travel down Fishcreek/Graham Road to coach the Rough Riders.

Black, an assistant at Stow-Munroe Falls for the past few years who was recently selected to lead Roosevelt, has the Rough Riders in his blood.

“This is definitely a dream,” Black said. “This isn’t really something that I was expecting so soon. I was happy at Stow and this is probably the only place that I would have left for. So it’s kind of like life full circle right now. I’m still trying to get used to it, but thankfully there’s plenty of familiar faces still and it’s home. It’s always been home.”

It’s not just that Black played at Roosevelt.

His older brother also played for the Rough Riders.

And his father, Cameron, won more than 100 games coaching Roosevelt.
