BLOOMFIELD, NJ - Paul Lape, Bloomfield High School Hall of Fame played on both Soccer and Basketball squads, passed away.

Athletic Director Steve Jenkins said that "his coaches and peers speak about him in almost reverential terms- one of the most gifted athletes in our schools history."

AD Jenkins said of Lape, "He was self effacing and humble- he never spoke about his exploits to our athletes- he just always found a way to commend them."
