Hank Madore, a native of Millinocket, was one of the toughest players ever to come out of Stearns High School. After graduating in 1948, Hank played the next twenty years for the Millinocket Pills, a semi-pro team. The Pills took on all comers and Hank was one person no one wanted to guard. Quick, tough, strong, and tenacious were words his competitors used to describe Hank. George Wentworth relied on him to show his young players how basketball should be played. He passed away in 2018.
