The Jewish Link and Drink Up would like to recognize 7-year-old Aharon Gross as this week’s Sportstar of the Week. Aharon is a second grader at the Rosenbaum Yeshiva of North Jersey (RYNJ) and was the recipient of the BFL week three sportsmanship award. When asked about Aharon, his BFL coach Richard Gans told The Jewish Link, “Aharon comes to each game with a smile on his face and ready to play. He’s always happy to get his chance at making a play and is happy for his teammates when they get their chance. He also shows good middos by returning a person’s flag after pulling it.”
