New Rochelle’s newest athletic facility will soon be named after Iona Prep alumnus Joe Fosina '53. The new state-of-the-art field will include a synthetic turf football, soccer and lacrosse field will be dedicated to Iona Prep Hall of Famer. Mr. Fosina is a “longtime youth football guru” who has dedicated over 30 years of youth service to the City of New Rochelle. Fosina Field at City (Flowers) Park is located at Fifth and Potter avenues and is part of the county’s Westchester Legacy program.
When complete, the 21-acre park will include five athletic fields that will permit multiple sports to be played simultaneously, plus a new playground, a "sprayground," basketball court and natural areas for passive recreation. "The whole Youth Tackle League program, both coaches and staff, are excited about this field," said Fosina. "We look forward to August, and the start of our season. It was a labor of love for most of us, and it’s just beautiful."
