Nafees Alam a.k.a. Face, a social work major at the College of Staten Island, has been involved with sports since he was 7 years old.
Through basketball in the streets of Queens, he learned quickly that sports would play a major factor in his life.
Entering high school, he learned that football, not basketball would be his true forte.
Now, years later, his knowledge and understanding of football and basketball are second to none.
He plans to one day become a football coach at some level of the sport.
Given his youth, he has a head start on his goal and could possibly end up at the highest level of the game.
A leader in every sense of the word, he has held positions of power in nearly everything he has ever been involved in, despite his age, leaving no reason to believe that such a trend will cease to continue.
