Eight years ago, a group of committed parents patched together a lower division travel team with players from various communities where a passion for soccer was the common denominator. Bonding over time, year by year the team added a player or two (mainly through attrition) while in the process rising in the ranks from Division 5 to Division 1 and ultimately beyond and out of state. Today, these young men are among the best public and private school soccer players in Nassau County. Formerly known collectively as the Atomics, these teenagers are lighting up the daily box scores in Long Island Newsday. By the end of this season, a fabulous year of playoff intensity and post-season awards will be bestowed upon these talented players.
