Coach Russo is a good guy and is good to his players but is not good enough to win at the division 1 level. He has had a decade of losing seasons at Hofstra.

A great guy and a players coach. He does play favorites but so does every coach. Not sure that he can coach a winning club with his style. There has been problems winning with him. Many people have mixed opinions and has been known to be skeptical of paying to play.

If you're from long island and connected in ways that can help him then this may not be a bad choice ... if you enjoy losing. His favoritism is awful, his hitting knowledge is even worse and he won't be there much longer. I've never seen daddy ball at the college level but I do remember it when I was 7. It's worse here.
