J.D., also known as “Mr. Hustle,” was one of the most outstanding athletes to play for Ranney School. A student of the game and a quick learner, he was an all-around athlete that left a lasting impact on each Panther team he played on. J.D. led by example with a burning desire to be a champion that inspired those around him. He played with a special passion and was a prime example of the term “team player.” As the 2007 “Athlete of the Year,” J.D. impressed not only his coaches at Ranney, but also coaches and players from across the state.
