Congratulations to Luke Sassano for receiving the Shining Star Award last night from the Starlight Children’s Foundation.  Sassano received the award for his work with children in the metro area.  He volunteers his own time at the Jubilee Center in Hoboken.  The Jubilee Center is an after school and summer safe haven for children in Hoboken’s public housing.  Along with his teammates, Luke participates annually in Dick’s Sporting Goods “Shop with a Jock”, a program where underprivileged children shop with a local athlete.  He is also continually one of the Red Bulls that makes the most appearances in the community throughout the year.

Other honorees this year included: New York Jets legend, Emerson Boozer, New York Giants tight end, Kevin Boss, baseball legend, Ralph Branca, Boxing legend, Gerry Cooney, New York Rangers right wing, Marian Gaborik, New York Knicks forward Al Harrington, New Jersey Devils left wing, Zach Parise, and Baseball Legend, Bobby Valentine.  Congratulations to this year’s honorees!

    Congratulations Luke!

    On a totally unrelated note, RBR can you confirm the contract situation of Leo Krupnik? There is a story in Israeli media that he has signed with Maccabi Netanya. Is this a permanent deal or some sort of loan? Is there any chance he will still be on our books next season?
