It was driving me crazy. What's the connection to Oneonta HS for The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. I know Jimmy Fallon attended the College of St. Rose in Albany and is from Saugherties. But there had to be something more to it. I found the connection. It's his writer John Haskell.  He's a writer and actor for The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and formally Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. He was born in Syracuse and I think he also graduated from Oneonta HS.

According to IMDb:

John Haskell was born on April 4, 1985 in Syracuse, New York, USA. He is a writer and actor, known for  The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon (2014), and Late Night With Jimmy Fallon (2009)

Here's a skit of John Haskell going on a blind date for The Tonight Show that aired in November. Wish I could find more.

Go John go!!! Good for you!!! Looks like you're having fun living the dream!!!

This is Jimmy Fallon and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson giving Oneonta HS their commencement speech in case you missed it. If you did see it, it's worth watching again.
