The New York Jets have recently recognized Floral Park Memorial’s very own varsity head football coach, Mike Spina, with their high school coach of the week award. When asked about receiving this honor, Spina said that it is his staff of assistant coaches and other support personnel that really should share this honor.
He continued by saying, “I want to make sure they knew how much I appreciate their efforts and hard work.”
According to the Jets’ staff writers, “The award, in its 18th year, is given to a coach in the tri-state area who serves the best interests of the game through the teaching of sound football fundamentals, the motivation of young players to achieve, and the promotion of youth football by way of dedication to their community their school and the student athletes.”
Spina will receive $1,000 to benefit the school’s football program and he will be presented with a certificate from the Jets.
