Readers Write: Kudos from Kufeld to Village of Great Neck

Former pro basketball player and Village of Great Neck resident Dave Kufeld extends his warm appreciation to VGN Mayor Dr. Pedram Bral, Deputy Mayor Barton Sobel and the Board of Trustees for designating next Sunday, April 7, as “David Kufeld Day” in recognition of his forthcoming induction to the Jewish Sports Heritage Association’s Hall of Fame.

According to Kufeld, “My inclusion in the JSHA Hall of Fame is thanks to so many individuals and institutions who have helped me along the way, and I am grateful to JSHA Director Dr. Alan Freedman for his leadership and foresight.”

Kufeld added, “As a player I was proud to continue the often-overlooked tradition of Great Neck basketball, extending back to the late Phil Hankinson of Great Neck North who played for the NBA’s Boston Celtics. For all the young players who diligently play at VGN’s Memorial Field courts, I say keep plugging away since you never know how far the game will take you.”
