The RAIN on Water Event Space Sportstar of the Week: Dovid Last

The Jewish Link of New Jersey and The RAIN on Water Event Space would like to recognize 7-year-old Dovid Last as this week’s Sportstar of the Week. The second grader at Yavneh Academy is having a great season for MGBL’s Greystone & Co. Earlier this season he wowed the crowd by hitting a buzzer beater with two seconds on the clock to secure the win

Dovid, congratulations on the big shot. Who is your role model and why?

My parents are my role models. My dad coaches my teams and is always teaching me things that help me on the court or field. My mom is always at all my games to cheer for me.

What is your favorite sport?

Football is my favorite sport to watch and play because you need to be good at everything to play well: running, jumping, throwing and catching.

What is your greatest sports accomplishment?

Hitting a last second buzzer beater from half court to win the game for my MGBL team this season.

What is your earliest sports memory?

The first game I went to at Yankee Stadium on July 4, three years ago. Aaron Judge hit a home run!

Who is your favorite athlete and why?

Saquon Barkley because he can juke anyone out.

What is your favorite sports memory?

Playing football on the field at MetLife Stadium with my family at a New York Giants event a few years ago.

What is your pregame routine?

I always practice dribbling the ball and taking a lot of layups before every basketball game.

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

Playing Madden with my brothers, Yonah and Judah..

What is the best thing about being a Sportstar?

Playing all my favorite sports: flag football in the fall, basketball in the winter, baseball in the spring and having fun with my friends and teammates.

The RAIN on Water Event Space Sportstar of the Week will receive a $15 gift certificate to any Teaneck Restaurant of their choice. Please contact RAIN at 201.817.8100 to receive a certificate.
