Matty was the strong boy of the trio...a mass of muscles at 6:4 off the boards. Not sure of his high school but the three of them played in the old Long Island Press League. Doubleheaders at the Garden that had Fordham vs Manhattan in the 1st Game and St.John's vs NYU in the 2nd were really neighborhood brawls (LOL).REmember the Fordham Section chanting "What the hell"s a Jasper" and Manhattan answering "the hell with Fordham, the hell with the Ram, the hell with Fordham and DAMN THE RAM" Dem were da DAZE!!
