ETSU, Castlewood legend Talford recovering after heart attack
East Tennessee State University Hall of Fame member and Southwest Virginia native Calvin Talford is recovering in an area hospital after suffering a heart attack earlier this week.
Men’s head basketball coach Steve Forbes confirmed the news on social media of the former basketball standout that was part of the ETSU teams that made the NCAA tournament including a first round upset of third-seeded Arizona in 1992. Talford was also a multi-sport standout at Castlewood High School.
Talford remains hospitalized. Former teammate Marty Story told the Johnson City Press that Talford is doing better but has a long road ahead of him.
