Sportsman Gerry McNamara was perhaps the greatest clutch shooter in Syracuse basketball history. Gerry was known for hot streaks where he could single handedly beat an opponent.
As a freshman in 2003, Gerry's 6 three point shots in the first half alone, helped vault SU to its first NCAA National Title over Kansas. By the end of his career, Gerry had amassed a host of accolades including 4th all- time leading scorer in SU history, Big East Tournament MVP, NCAA All-Tournament Team, Chip Hilton Player of the Year award (for Outstanding Character), Gold Medal -Team USA University World Games, and All American honorable mention.
Gerry was born in Scranton PA, and attended Bishop Hannan high school. As a result of his success on the court and for his outstanding character and competitive spirit, he is to this day known to fans as "the Mayor of Scranton." Gerry presently lives in Syracuse, and is an assistant coach for the Orange.
Gerry is passionate about Golf, Fishing and hunting and enjoys outdoor adventure in his spare time. His connections to family and friends in Pennsylvania remains as strong as ever, and his love for playing in the outdoors when he's not on the court will always be a major part of his life.
"I was born and raised in PA, and it is truly a sportsman's paradise... there must be something in the water there that makes us all want to hunt and fish. Fishing has always been a passion of mine, and Golf has become a major part of my life now as well. Living in Syracuse the weather constantly comes at you with a crossover dribble. Most days I need to check the weather several times and ScoutLook gives me the weather in a way that I love... right to the point. I use ScoutLook to quickly see when the rain or snow is going to start or stop, and I save all my locations for quick reports when I am on the run. Give ScoutLook a try and see how it's changing the way sportsmen are getting their weather."
