Dec. 5, 2012
Bronx, N.Y. - Fordham head baseball coach Kevin Leighton announced the addition of six student-athletes to play baseball at Fordham University, starting with the 2014 season. The six student-athletes are outfielder/catcher Mark Donadio (Mt. Sinai, N.Y./Mt. Sinai), infielder Matthew Kozuch (Glen Rock, N.J./Saint Joseph Regional), outfielder Jason Lundy (Freehold, N.J./Freehold Boro), pitcher Donald May (Buzzards Bay, Mass./Coyle Cassidy), infielder/pitcher Luke Stampfl (Dix Hills, N.Y./Half Hollow Hills West), and pitcher/infielder Greg Weissert (Bay Shore, N.Y./Bay Shore).
Donadio, a 6-0 outfielder/catcher from Mt. Sinai, New York, is a three-sport varsity athlete in baseball, basketball, and football at Mt. Sinai High School. He earned All-County, All-League, and All-State honors in baseball as a sophomore and a junior for Coach Eric Reichenbach's Mustangs. In football, under Coach Vin Ammarato, Donadio earned All-Division honors as a junior. A captain of both the baseball and football teams, he made the Principal's List at Mt. Sinai every year. Donadio also played summer ball for the MLI Phantoms under Keith Osik, winning the Town of Brookhaven Summer Championship in 2012. Donadio's twin brother, Michael, will be attending St. John's University on a baseball scholarship.
Coach Leighton on Donadio: "Mark is a dynamic player. He has size, strength, athleticism, and speed. He brings a very competitive attitude to the field and we are excited to have him join us next year."
Coach Leighton on Kozuch: "Matt comes from a very good program that turns out solid players every year. He is an exceptional athlete that we feel can hit towards the middle of the lineup."
Coach Leighton on Lundy: "Jason is another physical player who runs well. He has shown a good bat with some power at the plate and a solid arm in the outfield. We are excited about what he will bring to our program."
Coach Leighton on May: "Donny is a big, powerful right-handed pitcher. He has shown an upper 80's fastball with good command to go along with a power slider."
Coach Leighton on Stampfl: "Luke has the potential to be a two-way player for us in the infield and on the mound. He has very good defensive skills and has been clocked in the upper 80's. At the plate, he has the ability to hit for power and average. We feel that Luke can make an immediate impact on our program."
Coach Leighton on Weissert: "Greg is another big strong right hander who competes. He has very good command and two plus out pitches in his curveball and slider. We feel that he can be a contributor right away for us on the mound and are excited about his future here."
