NY Jet Brandon Marshall Visits Practice

Brandon Marshall (center) visited the team on Tuesday October 11th, 2016.

Brandon Marshall of the NY Jets came to Brooklyn Tech Football practice on Tuesday to talk about positive mental health and ways that athletes can train their mental game.  Introduced by Tyrone Parker of the Public Schools Athletic League, Marshall spoke to the players about his journey through life and how he deals with the pressure of being a professional football player.

Marshall’s  visit was very inspiring to the players.  The Engineers continue to play hard after coming up short against New Utrecht, Erasmus and Wagner.  This weekend is not only the last home game of the season, but the last home game for the seniors and their parents, both of which will be honored before the game.  Marshall reflected on having a “next play mentality” and pushing through adversity.  The program would like to thank Brandon Marshall for coming out to spend some time with us.

  • The Pre-Game Reading Club for kids will continue this Saturday at the field,from 9am-930am.  Our Reading Club was recently featured on News12 Brooklyn.
  • Captain John Hemminger was named PSAL Player of the Week for Week 2 against JFK.  Hemminger (above) caught the game winning 2-point conversion from QB Michael Marcovici to make the score 22-20.  John will be recognized at halftime of the City Championship game and will receive a $2000 college scholarship from the American Dairy Association.
