The Humble Toast Sportstar Of the Week: Nadav Furer

The Jewish Link and The Humble Toast would like to recognize Nadav Furer as this week’s Sportstar of the Week. The third grader at Yeshivat Noam, was the starting quarterback and a key contributor to the BCFL 2/3 Raiders impressive spring season. When asked about Nadav, BCFL coach Adam Frolinger told The Jewish Link, “Maybe not the biggest guy on the field, Nadav lets his play do the talking. His speed and ability to turn a nothing play into a big gain played a leading role in a successful regular season for the raiders. He also chipped in at quarterback, making some dazzling throws down the field and was always a sure handed flag puller. Most of all, Nadav is always a good teammate and with his big smile is someone his teammates enjoyed being around.” BCFL Co-Commissioner Steve Gutlove added, “Much like his older brother Charlie, Nadav is the consummate team player. Willing to do whatever it takes to win on the field but also the first to give a teammate a reassuring pat on the back or high five.”
