“Emmanuel is a budding star. His talent is off the charts and met with equal humility, work ethic, and kindness. He has all the makings to be the future voice of a major network. I can’t wait to see his journey unfold.”
-Ryan Ruocco, ESPN & YES Network

 

"I’ve followed Emmanuel’s career since his time at Fordham. Beyond his natural talent, he is incredibly dedicated to the craft, and his love for the game of basketball and other sports he’s covered shines through in his broadcasts. His play-by-play is simply terrific."

-Ed Cohen, New York Knicks Radio Play-By-Play

 

"Emmanuel squeezes every ounce out of the constructive criticism he receives and applies it back into his work. Many of us try to do this, but Emmanuel’s determination to reach the highest level of broadcast quality is truly an outlier characteristic, and one that will make a decision-maker’s job easy. I recommend him most highly."

-Justin Shackil, New York Yankees
