"Jovahn is a tremendous talent with a lot of upside.  Standing at 6'4" tall he played basketball in the winter and ran track in the spring while in high school.  I am looking forward to watching him develop while he focuses on track at Harvard. I think Jovahn can help our 4x400m relay achieve a new level of success during his time in Cambridge" - Coach Mangiacotti
