Gotham Burger Sportstar of the Week Michal Benloulou

The Jewish Link of New Jersey and Gotham Burger would like to recognize Michal Benloulou as this week’s Sportstar of the week. The 13-year-old will be starting seventh grade at Moriah, a unanimous selection to represent Moriah at the MGBL sponsored YMSSA all-star game and three-point contest on May 3rd. The talented Point guard dazzled the spectators during the game and won the three-point competition.

Michal told the JLNJ that her mom is her role model, but Stephen Curry is her favorite athlete “because he is the best 3-point shooter in the NBA, voted MVP this year, and plays the same positions that I do.” Her pregame meal consists of noodles with melted cheese. Her favorite sports memory was winning the MGBL YMSSA three-point shoot-out in May ‘15. When she is not lighting it up on the court Michal likes to hang out with her friends. According to her the best thing about being a sportstar is “getting recognition for what I love to do.”

Congrats Michal, the Gotham Burger Sportstar of the Week will receive a $10 gift certificate to Gotham Burger. Please send nominees for next week’s Gotham Burger Sportstar of the Week to [email protected]
