He ended his career as Assumption's number six all-time scorer with 1551 points, and still holds most of Assumption’s three-point records with 342 three-pointers. Assumption won the NE-10 Championship from 1990 to 1992, and John was an All-Conference player in 1992. As an athlete at NMH, John averaged 27 points per game and was named MVP of the 1988-1989 boys’ basketball squad, which finished 17-6. He also pitched and played first base for the baseball team. Prior to NMH, John attended Poly Prep in Brooklyn, New York, and played AAU ball with the Bronx Gauchos.
After a 13-year career in the NMH Admission Office, John currently works in the athletics department and lives on campus with his family.
