Video: Syracuse Walk-on Russ DeRemer Eats 4 Bananas In One Minute

That's a lot of bananas.

Syracuse reserve guard Russ DeRemer proved today that oranges aren't the only fruit he's fond of.

While Sarah Kogod, a sports blogger for The Washington Post, talked with players at the Verizon Center Wednesday, she stumbled upon DeRemer's passion for food-related challenges. Before long, DeRemer was shoveling down bananas as teammates cheered him on. Fellow guard Nolan Hart served as time-keeper and forward Albert Nassar handed DeRemer the bananas.

When all was said and done, DeRemer had eaten four bananas.

Now that's a lot of potassium.
