Monmouth County, NJ - When people talk about being a udo it all type of football player, we cannot have this conversation without mentioning a guy like Joseph Calello (@thebearded1_25 ).

Calello, who played QB at Brearley High school (NJ) in a triple option offense under head coach Scott Miller, has put those versatile skillset on display with the Garden State Herd. The Return man/running back/ receiver, was named the Offensive MVP for the Herd in the 2022 season & led the team in receptions & yards.

Head coach Wayne Dabney (@coachwayne1212 ) said to me about Calello, “He has the ability and skillset of a Swiss Army knife, he gives us a mismatch opportunity no matter where he lines up. We are looking forward to seeing him compete this season.”

This season Calello looks to be making the move to be primarily used as a running back, under newly appointed RB coach Tysef Meacham. Coach Meacham stated to me in a interview "I'm looking forward to creating ways to make calello a highly useful piece in this offense. I feel that his skillset is can be used to our advantage with him coming out of the backfield, creating 1 on 1 match ups with linebackers in the passing game (being that he has been used primarily as a receiver through his career).


Keep an eye out to see the production from Calello this upcoming season as the veteran in the room under the teaching of coach Meacham.
