Teaneck Doghouse Sportstar of the Week: Tani Katz

The Jewish Link of New Jersey and Teaneck Doghouse would like to recognize 13-year-old Tani Katz as this week’s Sportstar of the Week. The seventh grader at Yeshivat Noam is an avid basketball player. Most afternoons, after school he can be found in his driveway shooting hoops by himself, with his brother or with friends. And on Shabbat afternoons he walks all the way across town, to play basketball at the Whittier school with his friends from school. This Shabbat instead of playing ball he will be celebrating his bar mitzvah.

Tani, mazel tov on your bar mitzvah. I know you have many terrific role models in your life, but if you had to select one or two who would it be?

My parents because they help me every day.

What is your favorite sport?

Basketball.

Who is your favorite athlete?

Paul George.

What is your greatest sports accomplishment?

Winning the Camp Dora Golding sports championship!

What is your favorite sports memory?

For my bar mitzvah, my cousin got me box seats to a Knicks game and we were able to go courtside for a few minutes before the game! So cool!

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

I like playing Fortnite and watching NBA games.

The Teaneck Doghouse Sportstar of the Week will receive a $15 gift at the Teaneck Doghouse. Please send nominees for an upcoming Jewish Link of New Jersey and Teaneck Doghouse Sportstar of the Week to [email protected].
