Justin Tuck Awarded keys to county, presented with $10,000 charity donation

Football season may be officially over but that did not stop New York Giants captain and Super Bowl XLVI champion Justin Tuck from indulging in the team’s traditional pizza Friday during a visit to Umberto’s Pizzeria  & Restaurant of New Hyde Park on Friday, Feb. 9.

As packs of fans gathered to catch a glimpse of their hero outside the popular neighborhood restaurant, inside Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano and other county officials presented Tuck with the keys to the county and a citation for his work promoting children’s literacy through his R.U.S.H. for Literacy foundation.

An excited Mangano thanked Nassau County football fans for their enthusiasm and emphasized the positive economic impact the Giants’ Super Bowl XLVI win had on the local economy. He equally praised Tuck’s accomplishments on and off the football field. “He is a charitable man, he gives back,” Mangano said. “It’s such a breath of fresh air when you see someone succeed and they pause to give back to those who would otherwise not have opportunity. He really is a symbol of the American dream,” Mangano added.

Joseph Tavernese, Jr., Joins Team in Australia

Garden City High School Class of 2007 graduate Joseph Tavernese Jr. recently signed a contract to play soccer for Armadale F.C., a second division pro team in Australia. Upon graduation from Siena College in May 2011, where he attended on a Division I soccer scholarship, Tavernese embarked on a career in professional soccer, initially signing with F.C. New York, which is part of United Soccer Leagues.

“I played professionally [last] summer and I got re-signed for my team, but [the team] folded because we lost our sponsor,” Tavernese said during an interview on Monday, Jan. 30, the day before he was set to leave for Armadale. Undeterred, Tavernese picked up an agent, composed a resume and put together a highlight tape, which included two full games from his senior year at Siena. His agent sent his portfolio to various teams within multiple countries, and Australia came back with the best offer, Tavernese said.
