Joseph Recaps Memorable October

It has been a memorable two weeks for Stroudsburg (Pa.) defensive tackle Sebastian Joseph. The Rutgers commit won the Mountain Valley Conference championship Saturday and also has a roster spot to the Chesapeake Bowl and another visit to Rutgers under his belt.

Stroudsburg (Pa.) defensive tackle Sebastian Joseph had an exciting October conclude with a victory in the Mountain Valley Conference championship game. Winning 27-21 in the finals, Joseph and the Mounties are back-to-back champions.

"It means the world," he said. "I've been dreaming about it since I was little and it's truly a blessing to go back to back with the teammates that I have here.

"I wasn't feeling any extra pressure, but I knew I was needed to come and play my game. I was a little beat up, but I just kind of stayed down to earth and played my game and everything would go well."

Rutgers assistant coach Joe Rossi was in attendance for Joseph's win, which served as added encouragement for Joseph.

Joseph, who committed to Rutgers in the summer after a one-day camp, recently accepted a bid to play in the Chesapeake Bowl. Joseph joins Rutgers commits Myles Nash and Anthony Cioffi in the game.

"Everything is falling into place right now," Joseph said. "I was pretty excited to get invited. I've never been in an atmosphere like that, playing against that kind of competition. It's only going to make things better."

Joseph was on campus for the Kent State game and homecoming crowd before the bye week. Watching the game with Cioffi, Joseph said he immensely enjoyed the visit despite the loss for the Scarlet Knights.

"It was the best feeling in the world being back there," Joseph said. "It was an awesome feeling. I felt at home, like I was at the right place."

Joseph watch the game with his parents, who were two of his biggest supports when he made his verbal commitment.

‘They've been [to Rutgers] a lot and they love it there too," Joseph said. "I don't there there's any place they'd rather have me go to college."
