Eckstein Award Nominee

The Wake Forest Demon Deacons recently assumed the #1 ranking in college basketball, and in reading the game report the other night that their starting small forward has quite an interesting name: Jamaal Levy.

How did a native of Panama with a Muslim first name and Jewish last name end up at a Baptist university in North Carolina? Your guess is as good as mine, but I can say that like Eckstein Hall of Famer and Eagles running back Dorsey Levens, Jamaal Levy may be a Levite, but he's not a Jew.
