Highlight of the Week – Our Squad is Family

What is your ZogSports Highlight?

“We’re the Splash Brothers of North Jersey and this shot is from when we won the championship in the South Orange summer league. This is our third championship (in a row, if you don’t count the spring season, which only part of our team played). One of our teammates badly broke her ankle this summer, so this win was for Stacey. Our team formed two years ago, and although not everybody plays every season, the majority of our players are alumni from Montclair High School spanning 9+ years. Our charity is Montclair PAL, which runs Montclair’s rec basketball program for middle school boys and girls (which some of us have played or coached in). All of us are former HS and college athletes, and it’s an awesome feeling to play on a team together. Our squad is family!”

Highlight of the Week – An Easy Change

What is your ZogSports Highlight?

“My first experience with the ZogSports Family was when I first moved to the US from Italy and I joined ZogSports in New York. It was a great place to meet new friends. I knew moving to Philly would be an easy change for me, because I was sure I would be able to meet new amazing people through ZogSports Philly that would soon become friends. And I was 100% right!”

Highlight of the Week – A Very Zog Engagement

What is your ZogSports Highlight?

“I started playing Zog volleyball in Hoboken during the Fall season of 2013, Debra and I had been dating for about 9 months. It is likely that watching me play volleyball came a distant 3rd to exploring some of Hoboken’s fine restaurants and getting to see her boyfriend, but Debra dutifully attended many Zog volleyball games. I feel safe in saying that she was the #1 Zog fan. She learned all of my teammates’ names so she could properly cheer for them and learned the volleyball vernacular. Throughout the next four seasons, Debra resumed her status as #1 fan by stepping up her cheer “prop” game. It started out with the Volley Llama poster. She took her creativity to a new level with the Cream of Wheat noise makers. Lastly, but not least, she brought pom-poms for last season’s playoffs. You could say Zog was a big part of our relationship…

So it should come as no surprise that the day I had chosen to propose (Veteran’s Day, Nov. 11th) I also had a volleyball game scheduled in Hoboken. Now I know that Debra is very understanding but I certainly didn’t want to push my luck… I e-mailed my team and told them I couldn’t make it (for only the 2nd time in 2+ years of Zog volleyball). Of course things don’t always go as planned… Our captain e-mailed back and said we only had 4 players coming and 1 of them was limping quite badly. It was the last game of the regular season and we needed a win or 2 to make the playoffs. I told them I would see what I could do…

Nov. 11th arrived and I had everything I needed (parental permission, a shiny ring and the courage to go through with the biggest decision of my life). I’ll spare you the lengthy details but we spent the day together and I made a concerted effort to keep Debra on her toes. Every detour we took she wondered if there was another surprise waiting or if it was just another decoy. We finally made our way onto the pier in Hoboken and I got down on my knee and asked her to marry me. It was 7:45 PM, we were newly engaged and she says to me “Wait, do you really have a volleyball game tonight?!”. It might not be the most romantic thing to do after you get engaged, but the game was at 8 and we hurried across town to the Boys and Girls Club. The first people to hear that we were engaged were my Zog teammates. One of my best friends is also my Zog teammate… two of my Jersey City teammates were on the opposing team that night… Jen the ref has known us for 2+ years and watched our relationship grow.. and of course my Hoboken team is full of new friends. It might sound weird but Debra and I both thought it was very “us” that the 1st people to know about our engagement were our Zog friends. We won the match 2-1 and clinched our playoff spot. The wedding is set for September 24th of this year. It was a great outcome all around.”

From Fourth to First

What is your ZogSports Highlight?

“After pulling off a win in the last game of a dismal regular season our team was lucky to go into the playoffs as the 4th seed.  We had nothing to lose, seeing as how we had lost to all the other seeded teams, so we came out loose and looking to have fun. All the pieces of the puzzle seemed to fit perfectly that night, including some lucky breaks.  We beat the top seeded team by 2 scores, carried the momentum into the Championship game and didn’t look back. After years of coming up short in the Top Division, we finally did it!!!  Shout out to our playoff MVP’s Lauren Downey and Greg White!”

You play ZogSports to make new friends, keep playing your favorite sports, give back, and experience a highlight every week.  Now it’s time to meet the people that help deliver those highlights.  Let’s go Behind the Scenes with Field Team Supervisors:

Meet Steven!

steven hernandez

Steven is a Field Team Supervisor for NYC Soccer.

Z: How long have you been with ZogSports?

S: I’ve been with Zog for 6 months

Z: Why do you love working for ZogSports?

S: I love working for Zog, because there is such an amazing positive vibe/energy across the board between co-workers, office and field, as well as the teams.  It’s like we all know at the end of the day we are helping people and it translates to the way we all treat each other.  I’ve never worked in an environment where there is so much mutual respect and kindness towards one another and it seems to extend into our games.  The teams treat each other with more respect than I’ve seen in any other league.  It’s an amazing thing to witness and help create.

Z: What’s the best team name you’ve come across while working for ZogSports?

S: Best team name by far is WE USED TO BE BETTER (I think we all can relate).

Z: Do you have advice for the best pickup line to use at a ZogSports happy hour?

S: Sorry, I don’t really have any pick-up lines, been married so long I’ve forgotten all of them. (GOOD ANSWER!!!!)

Z: What has been your ZogSports highlight?

S: My ZogSports highlight is when we helped get a cab for a player who tore her ACL.  To make a long story short, the lights at Roosevelt Island go out promptly at 11pm.  Myself and 2 other co-workers were able to find her a cab by running about a half mile to track one down.  There aren’t many cabs on Roosevelt Island, so to find her one so late (literally 2 minutes before the light went out) and get her home safely was definitely my highlight.

Z: Next time you see Steven, ask him to tell you about the time…

S: he made 3 goals in a row from midfield!!!!

Creating a Zog Family

What is your ZogSports Highlight?

We’ve been with Zog football since it started in the bay area and slowly built a team after a few free agent seasons. Now our squad is like family. We go out together, we snowboard in Tahoe together, and I know I can always reach out to any of them if I’m ever in a pinch. Being a transplant to San Francisco isn’t always easy, but when I made friends like these it made the SF experience so much better!
