UConn and Wake seem to. Top 75 recruit, what are we thinking!?!

gw05099/10/2017 5:38:50 PM

You go to Choate or something, BROD?  UMASS also in the mix on Jaiden. Hopefully he wants to go away for college.

I believe Jaden is coached at Loomis Chaffee by none other than GW's own Rock Battistoni.

I love obscure crap like this! Thanks!

Now, there is a fine, fine name. 

My recollection, he looked a bit like my old pal, Monko Mammone. Less simian, more manly. Great name.

Russell Battistoni

Russel (Rock) Battistoni enters his first season as head coach of the boys varsity basketball team at Loomis. Coach Battistoni is an Associate Director of Admissions at Loomis and spent the past four years as the assistant coach at Cheshire Academy during which time he helped to coach and mentor many student athletes who went on to collegiate careers in Division I, II and III basketball. During his tenure at Cheshire, Battistoni and his team qualified for the Class B NEPSAC Tournament and in 2014 were NEPSAC Class B Champions.

Rock has had a variety of basketball experiences both on and off the court including stops with Washington Wizards, Springfield Armor, Westfield State College, Hopkins School and Cushing Academy. He played basketball professionally in Europe and was a member of the 2005 Atlantic-10 Championship George Washington Colonial team. Coach Battistoni lives in Hamden, Conn., with his wife Cara, son Milo (2) and dog Fletcher.

very cool to see

Rock had a stop with the Washington Wizards?  Did he go to one of their games?  Partial season ticket holder?  Ran into Andray Blatche outside of the Verizon Center?  I can't imagine what this statement means.

On another note, who knew his given name was Russell?  Be honest.
