The Jewish Link and The Humble Toast would like to recognize Judah Tracer as this week’s Sportstar of the Week. The 6-year-old, first grader at Ben Porat Yosef, is having a great season for the Bergen County Flag Football League Humble Toast Titans team. When asked about Judah, his father and BCFL Coach Daniel Tracer told The Jewish Link, “Judah loves playing football, all of it. He loves running, catching, throwing and just having fun with his team. He’s a very positive player no matter what is going on in the game, and he’s excited to give it his all for the playoffs.” BCFL Co-Commissioner Steve Gutlove added, “Judah has tremendous body control, not something you usually see in such a young athlete. He seems to glide through the defense. We are looking forward to seeing him co tinge to grow as a player in BCFL.”
