Ross, in his younger and more formidable years, was an athlete of the highest caliber.
He played baseball & basketball and played on championship level teams. His baseball team won the 1995 Sandy Koufax League title, and his 5th grade community ed basketball team finished second in their league.
Now, we’re not saying ROSS did anything momentous on these teams, just that he was there. However, in the winter of 1990, his layup, and following free throw did clinch the semifinal game in that year’s playoffs.
