2. Jim Prime Jr.

3. Jim Wren

1. George Zingali

2. Steve Brubaker

Ok, you said anyone from The Cavaliers in 1989. Well in 1989 The Cavaliers were under the leadership of: Lenny Wilkins, Dick Helm, and Brian Winters. Therefore they will be listed as your choices.

This is probably what I would say too. I know many will throw Dennis Delucia some love. 

I always wondered, from a visual standpoint, how much credit we should also give Marc Sylvester for his work with George Zingali? They were a team for many years...and I believe it was Marc who worked out the routing on the field for many of Zingali's designs? 

Also, I used to absolutely love the percussion scoring of Mark Thurston (is that correct?) from the Crossmen in the 80s/90s.

Maybe he was intending to mean Steve Brubaker,  Tim Salzman, Ken Snoeck, and Jim Campbell. Corps Director at the time was Adolph DeGrawe.  Also, I believe Jeff Fiedler was involved as Program Coordinator.

You missed the joke. Look up who was coaching the other better known Cavaliers in 1989.
