Teaneck Doghouse Sportstar of the Week: Joshua Ross

The Jewish Link of New Jersey and Teaneck Doghouse would like to recognize 8-year-old Joshua Ross as this week’s Sportstar of the Week. The Yeshivat Ben Porat Yosef second grader has been a key contributor on his AIFL team (the Patriots). Josh has scored many touchdowns, and more importantly, he really displays a concern for his teammates and cheers them on, celebrates their own victories. This past sunday, the Patriots topped the Dolphins 30-0, and Josh made two interceptions and scored a touchdown. Coach Dino Mattessich told the JLNJ, “Josh is a coach’s dream. A superstar athlete that embodies the philosophy of ‘One Team, One Goal.’”

What is your favorite sport?

Football.

What is your greatest sports accomplishment?

Getting a touchdown in the game against the Jets on Mother’s Day, with nine seconds left in the game.

What is your pregame routine, if you have one?

What is your earliest sport memory?

I remember being horrible at basketball when I was like 4 and then I practiced a lot to become much better.

What is the weirdest thing that ever happened to you at a game?

Going to a Knicks/Bulls game and everyone thought the Knicks would win but then the Bulls did.

What is your favorite sports memory?

Intercepting the football for the first time.

What do you like to do when you are not playing sports?

Listening to pop music and a few rap songs that my mom says is OK on Alexa.
