    In response to florida lion

Take heart Florida Lion as Erasmus Hall High School and Thomas Jefferson High School still have some life in them although they were split up into several smaller campus schools some time ago. In fact, while Erasmus is no longer the national basketball power it once was, Erasmus has experienced a football revival of late and one of its recent grads, Curtis Samuel, was a star running back at Ohio State and now plays for the Carolina Panthers. Academics are the issue today at Erasmus as well as Thomas Jefferson which produced Columbia basketball great, Jim McMillian. Finally, Power Academy, home of Karem Abdul-Jabbar, closed a long time ago, but there are still some solid Catholic High School powers in the Big Apple. Unfortunately, public school athletic facilities in New York City are just awful particularly in comparison with the out=of-town prep schools so talented players tend to migrate to those prep schools early in their career.
