An NBC Sports TV crew was on campus on Thursday afternoon to do a profile piece about MBS football coaches Tahj Valentine ’18 and Joe DeKasar, who are among the youngest and oldest coaches in the state. Tahj, who became head coach this year, is 23 years-old, while Joe, who has served as an assistant football and baseball coach at MBS for the past 20 years, recently turned 90.
In addition to interviewing Tahj and Joe, host John Chandler also spoke with football captains Micah Leibowitz ’24 and Brooks Limbert ’24 as well as Director of Upper School Athletics Joanne Dzama.
NBC will run promotional ads for the piece during its football coverage this Saturday and Sunday, and will air the full story on Monday, October 23 throughout the day beginning with its “Today in New York” program. Watch for it!
Earlier this week, the Daily Record also ran a profile story about Coach Tahj Valentine '18. You may read the story here.
