All available credit goes to the Three Idiots for discovering this great article catching up with JB Reafsnyder, but I want to highlight it in this space as well because of the long-standing love of JB held by the Cuse Country community.
Many moons ago, in our high school era, several Cuse Country contributors made a personal good-bye video for our boy Tim (also a contributor), who was being dragged away from the beloved homeland thanks to a family move. The early 1990s home made-quality video — exquisitely titled Remember Syracuse or Die — was jazzed up considerably by a random appearance by Mr. Reafsnyder himself. If I remember correctly, JB, then a player on the team, happened to be jogging by during an outdoor filming session, and was nice enough to humor a bunch of 14-15 year-old nerds by saying a few things into the camera. To this day everyone appreciates his friendliness, and at the time we were awed by the coolness of capturing the attention of a big-shot SU basketball player.
According to the article, JB retired a while ago from an 8 year career playing pro-ball over in Europe, and has since graduated from law school. Now he’s starting a new career as a lawyer in Memphis, where he was just hired by Wyatt, Tarrant & Combs. It sounds like his life has been going really well since he left SU, and that’s good to hear. Congrats JB, from a group of guys still rooting for you.
