RIP Reggie Lewis: The Day We Lost Our Captain

 

I wrote this column in memory of Reggie Lewis. It's hard to believe his untimely passing was 17 years ago today.

This feature is a tribute to Reggie's life as well as a personal story of mine being able to follow him in the early 80's on the great Dunbar HS basketball teams, and then again when he became a Boston Celtic.

I also had the honor of meeting Reggie once, and I tell that story briefly in this column as well. I hope you guys enjoy it!
