#49: Eric "Broadway" Jones (St. Raymond H.S./Urbana Univ.)
This Bronx, NY product has been a basketball player since he can remember. Coming up he caught whatever run he could. When it was time to decide on a High School a friend demanded he attend St. Raymond H.S. (in the Bronx) where the basketball program was better than other options he was considering. From there he would go on to play 3 seasons at St. Raymond. After his 3rd season he had a frank conversation with coach Gary DeCesare, which prompted him to transfer to Our Savior Lutheran to finish out his high school career.
He went onto JuCo and ended up playing at Division II Urbana University (OH) where he earned two degrees (on scholarship) while also being a part of the basketball program.
Today he's a successful entrepreneur with ownership stakes in the Harlem Wizards, City Legendz, LLC and a number of other ventures he keeps close to the vest. You can also catch him hosting From The Bottom To The Top Hoops on YouTube.
