Alex Dick was a basketball and football star at Wyoming Seminary, a prep school in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania. Wyoming Seminary was a scholastic sports powerhouse that took on the top high school teams in Eastern Pennsylvania and also scheduled some games against college teams. Dick remained an extremely popular sports figure for many years in Wilkes-Barre, playing independent basketball. In 1914, when long-time Wilkes-Barre sports icon, George Keller, entered a team in the newly formed Pennsylvania Basket Basketball League, Dick was the first player he signed.  By mid-season, however, their relationship had fractured and Keller released Dick, who soon signed with Hazleton where he completed the season. After sitting out a year, Dick had a successful comeback in 1916 with Plymouth.  Dick served in the Navy for two years during World War I.
