Nick Nurse, The Pride of Carroll and Kuemper Catholic
As the Raptors and Warriors played game 5 of the NBA Finals, Kerps Bar & Grill in Carroll had a Raptors watch party. As long as Nick Nurse remains head coach of the Raptors, the Toronto team will have a town full of fans in Iowa. Many fans at the party wore Raptors gear, but other were decked out in Kuemper Catholic colors. Nurse led Kuemper to a state basketball championship in the 1980s. He would later play basketball at UNI and coach both Grand View University and the Iowa Energy in Des Moines.
