Lennie was one of the best American players to ever grace these shores in an era when the standard of US imports was extremely high. He could do everything: shoot, rebound, dribble. Most importantly, he was also a top-class defender.
“We have five kids, Lennie junior, Jordan, Aysha, Dahna and Bryana, and three grandchildren. All my kids have played sports throughout their life including basketball.
“I have played for 11 teams: Blue Demons, Burgerland (Neptune), Team Harp Larger (North Mon), St Vincent’s Cork, St Declan’s, UCD Marian, Tolka Rovers, Denny Notre Dame, Longford Falcons, Sligo, Galway Democrats and Dungannon."
“I also had the pleasure of playing with some great players, both American and Irish of the caliber of Bob Stephens (Team Harp Lager), Soup Campbell (Sporting Belfast), Ger Heaphy (North Mon), Tom O’Sullivan (Burgerland) and Mono McCarthy (Blue Demons).
His plan for the future is to continue coaching basketball and teaching kids the joy and love of sports especially basketball.
