The story goes for the cliche headline (Big Man on Campus), but is an otherwise G:TB-affirming tale of George Muresan, a 6'8" (6'11" with the rooster 'do) forward for the St. Andrew's High School and the eldest son of Gheorghe Muresan. The junior starter isn't cut from the same cloth as his old man, slender and light on his feet, and more apt to take a wing jumper or drive to the basket than post up, but he does credit his father's counsel.
FOG:TB and Fans of Gheorghe alike will be pleased to learn that the elder Muresan comes across as the good guy that we know him to be, and a model sports parent. Says St. Andrew's head coach Kevin Jones,“Anytime you’re the son of a former NBA basketball player, there’s going to be some unrealistic expectations that come with that. But [Gheorge is] not one of the parents trying to come to our practices. He lets us do our job. . . . and all the kids love him.”
So do we, Coach.
