Thank you for the Pride that you have instilled in Curley Athletics. We still have pictures of you in our Athletic Director's Office. It gave many of us encouragement and pride to see an alumnus of ACND be touted so highly.It gave me a lot of pride, as a matter of fact, I still talk about the greatest athlete in Curley history when I get in those Miami-Dade circles. Thank you for helping to instill KNIGHT PRIDE.

I had the priviledge of knowing Cyril Baptiste the wonderful young man and the best basketball player I ever played with or against. As a Miami High Stimgaree I played against him througout high school and was his team mate at the All Star Game in Gainesville, Fl. the summer after our Sr. Year.

We worked together at the Coca Cola Bottler in Miami during the summer of 1969, right after our Freshman Year in college and that was the very last time I saw him or talked to him. He was a very happy, wonderful young man full of promise and aspirations at that time.

Sorry to hear about your passing my dear friend, my son Tommy call me from Miami this morning to let me know.

Maybe we shall meet again one day in the big hard court in the sky, then as always I will be proud to lace them up with you, shake your hand and call you my friend.

I agree with coach Petta's comments, "Cyril did not fail in life"

Rest in Peace the Great Cyril Baptiste and may God Bless You always!

My father use to tell me about Crispes Attics (Oscar Roberston) highschool basketball and the high level performance of the black athlete. I realized what my father said back then when I got to watch Cyril and the games against Key West as well as the season. I saw a player with dignity, size and grace on the court. Thanks Cyril for helping me understand a part of Black America in a time of racism and segregation and the quality you put into the sport!
