Former DeMatha two-sport Washington Post athlete of the year Aubrey Nash died. He was only 62. Our hearts go out to his family, friends, and teammates.
Nash led the Stags’ teams of the late 1960’s, before guiding Kansas to the 1971 Final Four. Also an All-Met linebacker, he hails from a section of N.E. Washington that also produced players such as Kevin Tatum, Skip McDaniels, Tony Ellis, Tom Sluby, Ed and Mike Tapscott, Kenny Carr, John Battle, Michael Bossard and Ronnie Hogue, among many others.
As an executive, it was Aubrey Nash who opened the pipeline for so many Washington basketball players to work for Xerox, among them James Brown.
