BUFFALO, NY - Just days after becoming Bishop Timon-St. Jude's new athletic director, Joe Licata has made his first big hire.

Once Desmond Randall stepped down as the the varsity basketball coach, Licata was faced with his first big task, finding Randall's replacement.

And he didn't have to look far to find it. He hired Buffalo native, Jason Rowe who was a star at Traditional High School. He led his team to the Class C state title in 1996 then carried that success in college at Loyola.
