Joseph Radin will graduate with a bachelor’s degree in finance this May. He entered the Spring 2016 semester with a 3.1 cumulative grade-point average. This past summer he completed an internship with Ladenburg Thalmann, an investment banking firm in New York City. In November he was named the Marist College Male Student-Athlete of the Month.

Character

Prior to the 2016 season, Radin was named a team captain for the second consecutive year. At a banquet honoring the Marist men’s lacrosse team’s 2015 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Championship, he was chosen to wear the no. 34 jersey in honor of former Marist men’s lacrosse player Edward Coombs. The recipient of the jersey is the player who best represents Coombs’ outstanding qualities: passion, determination and energy and is a great teammate and member of the community. Radin has recently spoke about this honor and what it means to him.  One of five male finalists for the 2016 Yeardley Reynolds Love Unsung Hero Award.

Community

Radin has participated in campus events such as the Marist Hunger Walk, Marist Giving Tree and Marist Heart Walk. He helped incoming freshmen settle into their dorms on move-in day at the beginning of the Fall 2015 semester. That same semester, he participated in the One Love Foundation’s Escalation Workshop with his teammates. The workshop educated students about relationship violence and empowered them to work for change. He has worked at the Marist Wellness Fair for two years and participated in the Friends of Jaclyn Angel Walk in 2013. He will participate in Sportsmanship Day at the local Haviland Middle School for the second straight year. In memory of his former teammate, Radin helped set up and clean up at the Edward Taylor Coombs Foundation Fall Ball Shootout and participated in the organization’s annual flag football event. For the past two years Radin has served as an outstanding mentor to the youth lacrosse community through clinic and camp work that develops shooting, passing and other techniques. Radin led volunteer efforts at the Poughkeepsie Children’s Home during the fall semester, creating a calendar with the organization for the entire Marist men’s lacrosse team to make two-hour visits twice a week. During this 10-week period, Radin visited the home 16 times. Marist will be visiting the children every Friday this spring. The Poughkeepsie Children’s Home provides a range of services and programs giving hope and healing to abused and neglected children in the Hudson River region.

Competition

Radin became the first Marist lacrosse player to be selected in the Major League Lacrosse Collegiate Draft when he was selected 45th overall in the sixth round by the Charlotte Hounds on January 22. In 2015, he broke the MAAC single-season scoring record with 55 goals, which also eclipsed the old Marist program record of 52 set nearly 30 years earlier. After starting all 18 games at attack and scoring three or more goals in 12 of those contests, Radin was named the 2015 MAAC Offensive Player of the Year. He was one of five Marist players to reach the 100-point milestone last season. Radin was selected to the conference’s all-tournament team after racking up 10 points on seven goals and three assists in the two Marist victories. He ranked third in the nation in man-up goals (11), ninth in goals per game (3.06) and 20th in points per game (4.06) in 2015. Radin was the MAAC Offensive Player Of the Year for the second straight season. Ended his career on a 54-game point streak and 32-game scoring streak, both of which are second longest in the nation as of May 18th, 2016.
