"I have had the opportunity to work with John and the youth level and have seen him progress into a mature college player. He is versatile and able to compliment our shape in multiple positions. After a stop at Hofstra, he has found a home at LaSalle. Hopefully, he can use the PDL training venue as a means to develop his game to make an impact at both this level and in August when he returns to college"
After being redshirted at Hofstra University in his Freshman year Giancarlo Granese went to LaSalle University to team up with a number of Nor’easters including goalkeeper John McCarthy and long time Nor’easter Junior Chapman. As a member of Ocean City High School’s Red Raiders soccer team he helped them to four straight Cape Atlantic League Championships as well as leading them to a State Finals as a Juinor.
