Joseph Flucus has been a dedicated chemistry teacher and track coach in the Bronx for the past nine years. He is a Bronx native who has continued to support youth throughout his professional career working with students in the Harlem Children Zone, International YMCA, and at Careers in Sports high school.

After a successful tenure as a Fordham ramp Joseph received an athletic scholarship to attend the University of Binghamton where he was a four-year all conference runner and held three school records.
His passion for sports did not end there. Directly after college at the age twenty-one he began coaching and teaching in the south Bronx helping students gain athletic and academic scholarships to college. He has coached several county and city champions in the largest athletic league in the country.
