Eastern York boys’ basketball coach Jon Reichard returned to teaching social studies at the high school earlier this week.

After undergoing surgery on Oct. 12 for prostate cancer, it was a good sign in Reichard’s recovery that he could get back to work.

Back in April, Reichard underwent a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test that detected that his blood levels were high. At the time, doctors put Reichard on antibiotics for the next two months, and when he returned for a checkup in June, the blood levels remained the same. He was then sent to see a urologist, where the cancer was detected.
