That’s how it has always seemed to work out for Jesse Dunn, who captained the Northeastern basketball team from 2002-04 after joining the squad as a walk-on, and today reaps the rewards of playing in the Lake Tahoe-based, nationally touring Americana band Dead Winter Carpenters as a guitarist and vocalist. As a senior coming out of the small Mount Mansfield Union High School near his hometown of West Bolton, Vt., Dunn was recruited by some smaller schools, but said just a few Division I schools took the time to talk to him – University of Vermont and Northeastern.
