 It’s sad to report that One of the most famous players in Big East history, and perhaps the most well-known, beloved Syracuse & Boys & Girls HS player ever — Dwayne Pearl Washington — died on Wednesday, according to his family.
He was 52.
Washington battled a brain tumor since last summer, when he was first diagnosed with the malignant growth. He had the first of multiple surgeries in August, and to help offset his crippling medical costs, a GoFundMe page was started in January. It subsequently raised more than $63,000 to aid Washington in his fight. ‪#‎ThePearl‬ ‪#‎DwayneWashington‬ ‪#‎TheGoodDieYoung‬ ‪#‎BoysandGirlsHS‬ ‪#‎Brooklyn‬
