What high school?


From what I can tell he played at Upper Room Christian School (which I have never heard of despite growing up on Long Island...).


They've been around for more than a decade. I remember them having at least one good team. Had a big guy named Coulibaly and another 6'9" kid.

Hey Lester if you are so close to Precious why not join him with the Johnnies.

Remember when Oregon St had that defensive 6'4 guard Lester "The Molester" Connor? Don't think that nickname would work anymore.

His brother Lyle "the Pedophile" Connor should probably consider a new nickname as well.

Mike thought since he is from Huntington he player for Huntington High School. From what I can tell he played at Upper Room Christian School (which I have never heard of despite growing up on Long Island...) and now plays for St. Benedicts.


Coming from Huntington, he could have gone to Huntington, or Walt Whitman (possibly Harborfields?). My first thought was that maybe he played at Huntington also.

Upper Room Christian School is located on the campus of Upper Room Christian Church Dix Hills on Route 231 just west of the LIE where Straight Path ends. The school goes from K - 12. Troy "Escalade" Jackson (Mark's younger brother) ran a basketball camp there IIRC and I believe had a nephew that played there before transferring to Hills West or East.
