Summer hoops in East Rockaway


East Rockaway High School student Danny Fusco was among seven students who competed at the Summer Hoops Festival held near Binghamton on August 2 and 3. The Basketball Coaches Association of New York Inc sponsors the event.

The team competed against other all-star-filled rosters throughout the state. They are coached by Mike Wimmer of Island Trees, Matt Johnson of Valley Stream South, and BCANY Section VIII Representative Coach Joe Lores of East Rockaway High School.

Every year, BCANY welcomes teams representing every section of the state to compete in New York’s premier basketball tournament. Players have the opportunity to compete alongside the best players in the state, represent their section, participate in clinics from college basketball coaches, and learn about the college-recruiting environment.
