O’Connell Selected to All NYC Metro Team

Thomas O’Connell of Carle Place, a Bunky Reid All-Star coached by Michael Jackson, recreation supervisor of the Village of Westbury, was selected to the 2010 All NYC Metro Team.

The team consists of the top 25 seventh-and eighth-graders from New York and New Jersey to play in the 2010 All NYC Metro JHS Classic, which was played at the Izod Center in New Jersey, the home of the New Jersey Nets.

After the game, Thomas was awarded with the Academic Award

for having a 99 grade point average. The award was presented by Jarvis Hayes of the New Jersey Nets and Hosea Givan of the National Give Back for Kids Campaign.

Also as a seventh grade student this past season, Thomas was the starting point guard for the Carle Place High School junior varsity team, coached by Joe Macchia.
