RED ARROW TROLLEYS: John Weber

Name John Weber
BBL Team Name Red Arrow Trolleys
Origin of Team Name

Growing up in Philly area, loved trolleys. Took ‘em to a lot of great places.  Plus, when I was living in Sharon Hill and stumped coming up with a unique name for one of my early teams, my five-year daughter said “how about Trolleys, like the Sharon Hill Trolley?” Worked for me.  

Red Arrow is the name of the old suburban transit company that ran the – you guessed it – Red Arrow Trolleys!
