Greenwich quarterback James Rinello

(Fun Facts, where we find out more about FCIAC athletes, was a regular feature on The Ruden Report Overtime newsletter. Until we start publishing the newsletter again, we are going to move it here to the site.)

A new Fun Facts with Greenwich quarterback James Rinello.

What are some of the pregame rituals for you or your team? Last year before pretty much every game I would go to a local restaraunt, Ada’s, and get a bacon, egg and cheese with Kobe Comizio and AJ Barber. 

What is your favorite local restaurant and what do you get? Rinaldi’s. I like to get a Hanna with cones on a roll. A Hanna has a chicken cutlet, bacon, avocado, cheese and honey mustard.

If you could have dinner with any famous person who would it be and why? Elon Musk. I feel like he would have a lot of interesting things to say. 

What are you most exited about at John Hopkins? Aside from the football aspect, I’m really excited for the chance to explore the city of Baltimore. 

What is your favorite vacation spot and why? My favorite vacation is the one my family takes to Maine every summer. We go to a really nice town close to Portland called Cape Elizabeth. 


How is your team handling football season this year with Covid? We just finished up our 7 on 7 mini season so now we are transitioning back to offseason mode. This means we will be lifting as a team and doing movement/conditioning training to prepare ourselves for a potential February/March season. 

What is something you enjoy doing in your free time and why? I like to play pickup basketball in my free time. We usually play at Riverside School and the games are always fun and competitive. We even had a 3 on 3 tournament this summer.
