Jim Bresnahan, in the 50 year history of Terra Nova High School, is the only player to receive a full-ride Division I scholarship for boy's basketball--and play all four years.

The 1967 Terra Nova graduate attended Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Over four years he scored 900 points, which ranks him as the school's 14th leading scorer.

He played for the legendary Coach Bud Presley. He graduated in 1972; however, he remained at the school to coach freshman basketball, golf and cross country. At Terra Nova he only played varsity basketball for two years, but nevertheless is one of the leading scorers in school history.

He was the 1967 North Peninsula League player of the year. In 1974 he was named to the Terra Nova all-time basketball team. He also played varsity baseball for Terra Nova.
