Trio of Hornets continuing football careers in college

first_imgThree members of this year’s senior class at Holmdel High School will continue to play football in college.Joe Disko, nicknamed “Tugboat,” signed on to play for Western Connecticut State. He will most likely continue playing at defensive tackle, although he also started as a guard for three years at Holmdel. In his experience playing for the Hornets, Disko learned some valuable lessons that should help him adjust to college.“I learned to always listen to your coaches,” he said.But college athletics will be a new experience and bring additional challenges for the young defensive lineman. “Academics definitely come first at Western Connecticut State. Five hours of study hall are required. In high school, it wasn’t like that,” Disko said. “I’m ready to work harder and do well academically, which is something the coaches stress.”Disko chose Western Connecticut State for its location and community, as well as its criminal justice program. He will be studying in preparation for a career in federal law enforcement.Kevin Gallogly served as Holmdel’s starting center for two years. He hopes to see playing time with the University of Rhode Island after the team breaks camp. His playing time with the Hornets was limited due to injuries, an experience that Gallogly is using to remain focused on making the most of his chance to play college football.“It took a lot of hard work in high school. I had a lot of injuries to overcome,” Gallogly said. “[College] [f]reshmen don’t usually get a chance to start, but it’s all about performance. I just want to get on the field.”Gallogly decided to attend the University of Rhode Island after meeting the coaches, particularly the offensive coordinator, Roy Istvan, who also serves as the offensive line coach.“Coach Roy called me every week to see how I was doing. He is a real nice guy,” Gallogly said.And one thing he will miss is playing under Holmdel offensive line coach Rick Haupp, who was only with the Hornets for Gallogly’s senior season.Gallogly chose the University of Rhode Island for its academics. He will study physical therapy in college.Matthew Fasciano, a three-year starting linebacker and senior captain for the Hornets, will attend Marist College. Although he also played tight end and tailback while at Holmdel, Fasciano will serve as an inside linebacker at Marist.“Starting as a sophomore gave me a chance to start early. That will help me with the jump to college because I’ve already been the small guy,” Fasciano said.“I’m going into college with an open mind,” he added. “You are really at the bottom of the totem pole as a freshman. I am going to put myself in the best position possible.” Fasciano said he will miss the bond he had with his teammates at Holmdel, but he is looking forward to forming similar bonds with his college teammates.“It’s like leaving behind a family,” he said of his Holmdel teammates.Fasciano always wanted to play college football, shifting his focus to football at an early age. “It has always been my goal,” he said. He also remains focused on academics, and will study business finance at Marist. BY MATTHEW ROCCO Correspondent last_img read more
