Rudy Puccella – #34


Birthdate: January 27, 1964                Hometown: Harrison, NY         School:  Harrison High School

Position: Power Forward                     Height: 4′6″                  Weight: 140

A legitimate power forward, there’s not a rebound that Rudy won’t pursue or a loose ball that he won’t dive for.  If you’re facing Rudy you better be ready for a dog fight, because he’s in it to win it.  Rudy brings that competitive fire to the team that we’ve never seen before and he’s our dennis rodman on the boards.  He’s accurate on offense, under the hoop he’s automatic.  His size and physicality intimidate the opposition and lead to opportunities.

Rudy has been involved with LPA and DAAA for over 25 years and is a senior on the Towers.  He was a part of a groundbreaking team in New York 20 years ago, called the New York Rockers.  They helped lay the ground work allow with the LA Breakers for modern LP basketball in America.  Rudy is the last of the Rockers to still be competing and that is a testament to his dedication to staying in shape.

Rudy came out of retirement this past summer to help lead the Towers to a Gold Medal run in Nashville and was able to taste the thrill of victory once again.
