In the dictionary next to the word “tireless” there could very well be a photo of Mira Martincich, Roslyn’s athletic director who is retiring at the end of June after 32 years in the school district. No matter the season, the weather or the time of day or night, Dr. M was quite literally always there. For a generation of students, teachers, coaches and parents, she has been the face and spirit of Roslyn athletics.
As noted in last week’s issue of The Roslyn News, students in Maggie Connolly’s fourth grade class at The Green Vale School were visited by New York Giants linebacker and long snapper Zak DeOssie.
The day was a special one for a variety of reasons: Miss Connolly and Zak are both graduates of Brown University; as a professional football player, Zak is a Pro Bowler and a member of the Giants’ incredible 2008 Super Bowl team. Zak is the son of Steve DeOssie, himself a former Giant great and a member of the 1991 Super Bowl-winning Giant squad. Steve and Zak represent the only father/son combination to win a Super Bowl for the same team. Who knows when that will happen again? Pictured below are more photos from the exciting day at Green Vale.
