Abington Friends School alum and former Bucknell University basketball stand out, Bryan Cohen, is being inducted into the Philadelphia Jewish Sports Hall of Fame on September 29th.
From the Jewish Exponent:
Cohen…said the achievement was “surreal” because he grew up playing basketball in the area. He’s still only 32.
That I got inducted at such a young age means a lot” he added.
Cohen is a gold medal winner with Team USA in the 2009 Maccabiah Games, and while playing for Bucknell, he was named the Patriot League Defensive Player of Year in 2010, 2011, and 2012.
Cohen also played professionally from 2012-14 for Maccabi Haifa in the Israeli Basketball Premier League.
As previously reported, Jenkintown native and Abington High School alumna, Carol B. Polis, the first female professional boxing judge, will also be inducted at the same ceremony.
