DURHAM -- Every tradition in Cameron has a story. 

Jerry Bernstein, a Raleigh-based pediatrician and Duke graduate, has become a featured "Crazie" during the "Every Time We Touch" media timeout at Men's Basketball games. 

While the students dance in unison, Jerry has his own practice and tradition to uphold. 

What started innocently enough as two co-workers having fun at a game, Jerry's dance has transformed into an every-game requirement.  The Blue Devil Network reached out to Jerry to explain the origins and motivation behind his dance and how his energy and exuberance has to do with much more than simply being a fan.
