Sterling, CO - Northeastern and Coach Eddie Trenkle are excited to announce that Joseph Uke has signed to play on the 2013-2014 basketball team at NJC. Coach Trenkle says that Joe is an up tempo high flying guard that runs, jumps, dunks and shoots. He will be a great addition to the already deep NJC team that will be returning next year.
Joe comes to Northeastern from El Paso, Texas where he played for a premiere AAU team, The New Mexico Force. While playing for the New Mexico Force, Joe often made the crowds cheer with his explosive dunks and acrobatic plays. Joe has an uncanny ability to get to the basket and finish. He also has worked hard on his outside game and will be able to stretch defenses. Probably his strongest trait is being able to use his Supreme athleticism and guard on the ball. Coach Trenkle thinks that he has found a guy that can get Northeastern back to where they want to be in March and that is Hutchinson Kansas, playing in the National Junior College Tournament.
Coach Eddie Trenkle and the program are looking forward to Joe joining the Plainsmen.
