Brisker

+

Jaquan Brisker, a safety at Lackawanna CC near Pittsburgh, has signed with the Univ of Alabama. Any long-time Sonics fan should immediately wonder: Brisker? Pittsburgh? Yes, he's the grandson of John Brisker. He even started playing basketball in high school but quit in order to focus on football and improving his academic record. http://triblive.com/sports/hssports/basketball/11855243-74/brisker-basketball-gateway Somewhat troubling, in addition to the academics: his brother was killed a few years ago, so there's a high mortality rate in this family. http://triblive.com/sports/hssports/basketball/11855243-74/brisker-basketball-gateway
