Joe was the first quarterback of the famous Streak teams. Joe led the Crusaders to victories as a sophomore, 36-12, a junior 8-7 and closed out his senior year with a 36-12 rout of the Marauders. Joe led the Burke League in passing as a sophomore, junior, and senior. He earned All-Catholic as a senior. Following High School he attended Boston College.
