Gotham Burger Sportstar of the Week: Rafi Koslowe

The Jewish Link of New Jersey and Gotham Burger would like to recognize nine year old Rafi Koslowe as this week’s Sportstar of the week. In his AIFL opening game, Rafi ran for an 80 yard touchdown on the first play of the game and then later sealed their team’s victory with a 2 point conversion to allow his Arizona Cardinals to begin the season 1-0. Winning a nail biter 16-12.

Rafi, congratulations on a great first game, I am sure this is only the first of many great games. Who is your role model and why?

My role model is Omri Casspi because he is a Jewish superstar and brings his NBA friends to Israel to show them how great it is. We met him there once!

Who is your favorite athlete and why?

My favorite athlete is Odell Beckham Jr. because I love the Giants and he was the offensive rookie of the year.

What is your pregame routine?

Before each football game, I like to practice drills.

What is your earliest sport memory?

I remember my dad getting me a Redskins helmet and jersey once as a present (he wanted me to be a Redskins fan).

What is the funniest sports related memory?

One time, I went to see the Rockland Boulders and every time #11 on the other team got to bat, the whole stadium would scream “pancakes,” because if he struck out then all of the fans would get free pancakes, it was hilarious. P.S. he struck out!

What is your favorite sports memory?

When I got to meet and get autographs from a bunch of NY Giants players at their preseason practice.

What is your favorite thing to do when you are not playing sports?

I love playing with my friends from school and my neighbors.

What is the best thing about being a Sportstar?

Getting to go to Gotham Burger to get a hot dog.

The Gotham Burger Sportstar of the Week will receive a $10 gift certificate to Gotham Burger. Please send nominees for upcoming Gotham Burger Sportstars of the Week to [email protected].
