POMONA, NY – New York Boulders Baseball Outfielder Jack Sundberg named this year’s recipient of the Johnny Thompson Unsung Hero Award.

John Thompson, who has Cerebal Palsy, is a resident of Nanuet and a true inspiration. He embodies the never quit attitude. He is the Disabilities Liaison Officer for the NY Boulders and the play-by-play announcer for the Rockland Community College Men’s & Women’s Basketball Team.
