VESTAL, N.Y.—Former four-year baseball standout and scholar-athlete Jeff Monaco has received recognition as an accomplished young professional by the Southern Tier Opportunity Coalition.
Monaco, an associate attorney at Levene Gouldin & Thompson LLP, was included on the STOC’s “20 in their Twenties” list of honorees. He was recognized during a gala reception on March 12 at The McKinley in Endicott.
The “20 in their Twenties,” in its fifth year, celebrates the future and current leaders in our community while recognizing the accomplishment of young people throughout the Southern Tier. These young individuals express these ideals with their actions, through their academic excellence, community service, individual leadership, and professional achievement.
Monaco played baseball at BU from 2004-07 before graduating magna cum laude with a degree in finance in 2007. As an outfielder and middle-of-the-lineup hitter, he was a key member of a Bearcats program that increased its win total every year, culminating with a 17-5 conference record and an America East regular season crown in ‘07. Monaco compiled nine home runs, 75 RBI and 114 hits as a three-year starter. He hit .306 as a sophomore and drove in 33 runs with 14 extra-base hits during a breakout junior season.
He also was a two-time ECAC Merit Medal winner for his academic achievements.
He was a two-sport all-star at Seton Catholic Central High School and went on to law school at the University of Buffalo, graduating in 2010.
