Jack “the Shot” Foley
A new book recounts the legend of Jack “the Shot” Foley. Foley is a true Worcester legend and author Mark “Pathfinder” Epstein who knew him well tells his story, while also telling the story of different times. Foley played at Holy Cross in the early 1960’s and then to generations of Worcester youth he became a friend and mentor through his teaching and coaching.
Epstein devotes an entire chapter of the book to Togo Palazzi, another legendary basketball player with deep roots in the community who recently passed away. Epstein talks about the two men, the impact they had and his new book with Hank Stolz.
