Justin DeFoe - Defenseman - Johnson & Wales University
"Due to your amazing showcase and the exposure that my son Justin DeFoe
received, he signed his letter of intent to attend Johnson & Wales in Denver
in the Fall of 2018. The recommendation to Coach Devin Arkinson clearly
had a significant impact on Justin’s skills he demonstrated at the So.Cal
Showcase on Sunday May 20, 2018. Justin will be playing Defense for Coach Kurt
Ohlen who was at the Showcase and observed Justin play. Justin was contacted
by three universities following the Showcase and decided that he was very
impressed with Coach Ohlen and really wanted to play for him.
Justin has played for the last ten years and he finished this year as First Team
All-Sunset League as a Defenseman for the Huntington Beach Oliers. He will
continue to work with Coach Atkinson over the summer to ensure he will
contribute at a very high level at Johnson & Wales. All of this would not
have been possible without Buku Events."
