Before he became one of the most decorated student-athletes at Marist College, Joseph Radin played four sports while growing up in Long Beach, New York; football, soccer, ice hockey and lacrosse. His father and uncle had solid careers in collegiate ice hockey, but while living on the South Shore of Long Island it was lacrosse that appealed to Radin the most.
And so the Red Foxes ended up with the left handed attackman from a lacrosse hotbed, who would become the program’s first Major League Lacrosse collegiate draft choice. Radin was picked 45th overall by the Charlotte Hounds prior to the 2016 NCAA Lacrosse season. He was one of 50 men’s lacrosse players in the country selected to this year’s initial Tewaaraton Watch and is the first Senior CLASS Award finalist to come out of Marist.
In 2015, Radin was selected the Offensive Player of the Year in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference. He finished the regular season atop the MAAC in points (3.93), shots (7.86) and man up goals (0.64) per game and earned a spot on the conference’s All-Tournament Team after leading Marist to its first NCAA Tournament berth in a decade. When the Red Foxes played at Syracuse in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, Radin became the MAAC’s all-time leading scorer with his 55th goal of the year. He had previously broke Marist’s single-season goals record, which had stood at 52 for 28 years.
Off the field Radin has given back to his campus and hometown communities in his four years at Marist. During the Fall 2015 semester he led volunteer efforts at the Poughkeepsie Children’s Home, designing a calendar with the organization for his 37 other teammates to make 2-hour visits twice a week. During this 10-week period Radin visited the home 16 times. He was chosen to wear the no. 34 for his senior season 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, energy, and a great teammate and member of community.
Over the summer Radin completed an internship with investment banking firm Ladenburg Thalmann in New York City. He also helped a small group of fifth grade lacrosse players develop their shooting, passing and other techniques, three times per week.
Radin will graduate with a bachelor’s degree in finance in May.
“Joe is an unbelievable player. His success speaks for itself. Where he is nationally in points per game and goals per game, and what he does for us on the man up is astounding. He’s a guy that shows up every day ready to work, really stepping into his leadership role and putting his arm around guys when they need him.”
– Head Coach Keegan Wilkinson
“Wearing no. 34 is the greatest honor I’ve had in my life. Words can’t express how honored I am to wear his jersey to represent (Eddie Coombs’) family and the Marist community. Mr. and Mrs. Coombs have done so much for our program and their community. I just want to go out there and do the best I can in their son’s uniform representing what he means to this team on and off the field.”
– #34 Joseph Radin
A tradition that is in its infancy but carries an infinite legacy, the Marist men’s lacrosse program began a new tradition by choosing a senior at the beginning of each season to wear the jersey of the late Edward Coombs, number 34. Student-athletes selected to wear his jersey embrace the characteristics with which Edward lived his life: determination, energy, passion, while being an exemplary teammate and member of the community. In November in front of his teammates and coaches, Joseph Radin was presented Edward’s jersey for the 2016 season by his father Eric.
In August 2011 the Marist College community and men’s lacrosse program unexpectedly lost Edward Coombs, following his freshman year. Coombs lost his life in a car accident near Horsham Township, Pennsylvania, his hometown. To honor Edward’s life and legacy, from the 2012-14 seasons no. 34 was worn by a different player for each game. Since 2015, number 34 was awarded to the senior that best displayed the characteristics of Edward. Since his passing in 2011, Edward’s parents Eric and Tina and sister Erin have been ardent supporters of the Marist men’s lacrosse program.
