The Boston Globe profiles family of Bobcat hoop standout Jimmy O'Keefe '10
The Boston Globe describes the basketball passion of the O’Keefe family of Lexington, Mass., noting that parents Jim and Heather use a color-coded sheet to keep track of their three sons’ games. Son Jimmy O’Keefe ’10 is a 6-6 starting center for the Bobcats, while younger brother Dan is a 6-5 freshman forward for Bentley, and Chris is a 6-foot Lexington High sophomore guard. Globe writer Marvin Pave quotes Bates head coach Jon Furbush ’05: “Jimmy has developed a great back-to-the-basket game. With his long arms and physical play, he can be very difficult to defend against down low. His will to consistently rebound on both ends of the floor has inspired me as a coach. And his energy, passion, and enthusiasm has inspired his teammates.” View story from The Boston Globe, Jan. 17, 2010.
