This Cardinal Hayes grad was said to be the most impactful player in the school's history since Jamal Mashburn played there. While growing up in the Heights of Washington (uptown Manhattan to the rest of you), he honed his skills both around the neighborhood and with his bunk bed-mate (older brother) Ricardo Greer. When his friends ended up committing to attend Cardinal Hayes, circumstances push him there as well.
He would go on to play at Rutgers and from there embark on a 16 season professional career where he was able to play a key part in 2 French championships, both alongside Ricardo.
On this episode we hear a story of perseverance, determination, tragedy and how Jeff Greer reached some incredible heights.
