JLNJ Sportstar of the Week Judah Oppenheimer

The Jewish Link of New Jersey and Gotham Burger would like to recognize SAR 8th grader Judah Oppenheimer as this week’s Sportstar of the week. The 14-year-old SAR point guard was one of the key factors behind SAR’s 11-0 record going into last week’s championship game. Oppenheimer shot the lights out in SAR’s semi-final victory over a really talented RYNJ Jaguars team, including a game winning buzzer beater over a taller defenders outstretched arms. Steve Gutlove, coach of the Jaguars told the JLNJ “to hit a clutch shot like that as the clock is expiring, shows tremendous poise, Judah must have ice in his veins, very cool under pressure.”

Judah who would you say is your role model?

My brother Daniel because he inspires me to work hard and never give up.

Who is your favotire athlete?

Stephen “Steph” Curry because he’s a pure shooter with a great crossover and donates money to charity for every 3 pointer he hits.

What is your pregame meal?

I eat lots of fruit, bananas, apples and Gatorade

What is your earliest sports memory?

Imitating Vince Carter in my basement in the NBA Slam Dunk Contest

What is your favorite sports memory?

The Giants winning the Super Bowl. My family is big time Giants fans. We bleed blue.

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

Hang with my family, go on vacation and go to the beach.

What is the best thing about being a sportstar?

It gives my grandparents something to talk about and gives me something to share with my kids one day.

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]
