Congratulations to Kyle Moser '19 and Jack Greene '19 who recently signed letters of intent to play Division III Basketball at Wentworth Institute of Technology and Regis College, respectively.
"Jack and Kyle have been model student-athletes at Holy Cross," said Coach, Ryan Olsen '97. "They have been great on the basketball court. Their futures are bright and, I am confident that Holy Cross has prepared them to be successful both academically and athletically at the next level. I can only hope for the opportunity to coach more young men like Kyle and Jack, I will surely miss them."
Kyle started playing basketball in fourth grade. He immediately fell in love with the competitive nature of the sport. Jack started playing in seventh grade after he was injured playing baseball.
"Both of my brothers played basketball," said Jack. "It really runs in our family."
Jack and Kyle both credit Holy Cross for helping them to be more adept, competitive and humble. Each served as captains on the team. "As a captain, I learned how to sacrifice my own necessary stats for the sake of the team. It wasn't all about one person. It was for all of us."
"I am a transfer student," said Jack. "At my other school, there wasn't a set rotation. You were just given your spots. Here, you have to fight for you spot."
And what advice do they give to others looking to play athletics at the college level? "Keep working hard," said Kyle. "Coaches look more at who you are a teammate. I have talked to a few coaches, and they said they watch the demeanor of players when they are sitting on the bench more than when they are in the game."
Kyle plans to major in Biomedical Engineering at Wentworth. Jack is still undecided but anticipates that it will be something related to Physical Education.
