While at East, Fisher was a two-year starter in the forward positions on the boy’s varsity basketball team. Playing under Coach John Valore, Fisher was First Team All-Olympic Conference his junior year, followed by First Team All-South Jersey, Third Team All-State and First Team All-Jewish All-American honors his senior year of high school.
Following East, Fisher continued to play basketball at Cornell University. Fisher’s career almost came to an end during his first collegiate basketball game where he suffered a left arm injury. However, he returned 7 months later and built a successful collegiate career for himself. During his final season at Cornell, Fisher was a senior co-captain and starter. His highlight from senior year includes scoring a game-winner at the Cornell v. Penn game, knocking Penn out of contention for March Madness.
After graduating from Cornell, Fisher played for several Israeli profession league teams from 1998-2002. In addition to the Israeli teams, Fisher played for the Atlantic City Seagulls and Team USA in the Maccabiah Games.
Continuing his love for sports, Fisher today works with Major League Baseball. Married to fellow East alum, Allison Grolnick, Fisher lives in Westfield, NJ with three kids.
