Geer was part of one of ETSU’s historic recruiting classes that captured four consecutive Southern Conference championships, trips to the NCAA tournament, and earn a top-10 ranking in the Associated Press poll in the 1990-91 season.
One of Geer’s best friends on that squad Alvin West passed away in 2018 at the age of 49.
Multiple reports indicate Geer died of complications following emergency heart surgery.
It saddens me to hear that we have lost a beloved member of our ETSU Basketball family. Major Geer will be remembered as a true Buccaneer and ETSU legend. Our deepest condolences go out to @GeerJalen, @ChanlerObray and the rest of the Geer family. #ETSUTough
