The Humble Toast Sportstar Of the Week: Josh Treuhaft

The Jewish Link and The Humble Toast would like to recognize Josh Treuhaft as this week’s Sportstar of the Week. The 16-year-old junior  at the Yeshiva University High School for boys has had a great year for the MTA varsity Lions basketball team. When asked about his starting center, MTA Lions coach, Ushie Selevan, told The Jewish Link, “Though only a junior, Josh has shown tremendous leadership skills both on and off the court. He always gives 100% effort, both in practice and games, and is eager and willing to improve his skills to become an even better basketball player. I can’t wait to coach him again next year.”

Josh, congrats on being recognized as this week’s Sportstar of the Week! Who are your role models and why?

My role models would have to be my parents because of all they do and what they do for me and others.

My favorite sport is basketball, because growing up I would watch the Knicks on TV.

My pregame routine consists of stretching, form shots and shooting around the elbows.

What is your greatest sports accomplishment?

My greatest sports accomplishment would have to be being selected to the Cooper Invitational All Star team as well as being top 10 in the tournament in scoring. That’s my greatest accomplishment because it showed my growth as a player from JV to varsity.

My funniest sports memory would have to be in seventh grade when I was on the RYNJ basketball team. We were winning by 20 and I had the ball with 10 seconds left and took a half-court shot.

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

My favorite thing to do when not playing sports is to watch sports, no matter the team.
