I would like to extend my sincere condolences to the entire Bray family over your loss.
I attended Stamford High School with James. He was a co-captain of the Varsity Basketball Team at SHS when I was a co-captain of the Junior Varsity Team, but, quite honestly, he had more basketball talent in his big toe than I (an awkward white kid) had in my entire body. We had a couple of classes together and became friends.
James had a quiet demeanor, dressed impeccably, and exuded a kind of class and professionalism that was unique for such a young man and that I greatly admired. He was an extremely talented player that never trash-talked and instead let his game do his talking for him on the court.
While I have not seen James since our days at SHS, I am quite certain he carried these same admirable qualities with him through his adult life. He will be missed.
