Mineola 10-Year-Olds Finish With an Impressive 8-2 Season

 After winning the 9-year-old division No. 2 championship last year in the Nassau County Youth Football league, there was only one goal for the 10-year-olds this year when they started practicing 3 days a week on August 2nd. Win the division 1 championship.

The Chiefs won the regular season Conference championship by going 7-1, beating out 15 other teams. They then took on a very determined Inwood team in the semi-final game and prevailed. The Chiefs then were one step from their goal. Playing on the main stage at Mitchell field stadium on Sunday November 21st they fell short and lost to a very tough Uniondale team. The boys should be very proud of their accomplishments this season and will begin practicing on August 1st as 11-year-olds with one thing on their mind. Get back to the championship and win. They will celebrate their successful season on December 3rd at the annual Mineola PAL Football Dinner.

Coach Imperatore would like to thank the coaches for all their time and dedication to the boys. They are: Nakia Simmons, Peter Gibbons, Ron Clyburn lll, Duane Marcy, Jay Chin and Bert Cumming.

Members of the team were:  T’Ziah Albert, Alex Antoniello, Anthony Arocho, Matthew Baltzer, Immar Butler, Jordan Chin, Joesph Cucuzzo, Bert Cumming, James Denara, John Denara, John DeRidder, Mike DiBenedetto, Nick Duras, Robert Egan, Eric Fox, Christopher Giunta, Jon-Paul Gonzalez, Campbell Goulet, Andrew Graham, Sean Hairston, Andrew Imperatore, Phillip LaPierre, Daniel Long, Mike Marcy, Justin Menos, Dominick Milazzo, Lucas Pelaez, Ricky Santos, Tyrel Simmons, Jared St. John, Jake Steffen, Joseph Sullivan, Benjamin Tan and Sebastian Turcios.
