Hometown Hero: Joe Dos Reis


This week’s Cardi’s Furniture & Mattresses Hometown Sports Hero is Joe Dos Reis.

The LaSalle senior brought home the 1500m title and finished 2nd in the 1,000 at last Winter’s RIIL Indoor Championships, helping the Rams to their 24th State crown. He achieved his success despite battling Mononucleosis through his Cross Country and Indoor seasons.

“I just remember an athlete who did the best he could given the circumstances of health and was willing to go back out there the moment he could to contribute to his team,” said Rams head Cross Country coach Ken Skelly. “So it’s just a testament to his character.”

Joe’s success has earned him plenty of college interest and the captain has narrowed his choices down to Davidson, Princeton and Georgetown.
