NJCAA Success Story

A good friend of mine from Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, Joelle Taliento, only started playing lacrosse a couple of years ago. He had graduated from high school without ever playing, but picked the sport up at the age of 18, and took to it rabidly. I have never met a kid who improved so much in only two years, and couldn’t be more proud of what he has accomplished already!

Joelle is now a member of the Broome CC lacrosse team, and is hoping to play at a 4 year school after he finishes up at Broome. Hard work, dedication and a ceaselessly amazing attitude can do a lot for a young man. Congrats to Joelle on making it to the next level! We wish him continued success and growth!
