Jericho High School’s varsity football game against St. Dominic’s was special for the 10 seniors who played in front of the home crowd for the last time on Senior Day. But the day was perhaps even more special for three children from St. Mary’s Children’s Hospital in Bayside, Queens, who were named “honorary captains” for the Jayhawks.
St. Mary’s is New York’s oldest and largest provider of long-term care to children with medically complex conditions. Senior captain Spencer Shapiro has been volunteering his time at the hospital for the past year, and came up with the idea to create a unique experience for the children who rarely get the opportunity to leave the hospital. He contacted Jericho Athletic Director, John Mankowich, and Head Football Coach, Tim Drake, and got clearance to stage this memorable experience.

The Syosset Braves nine-year-old youth football team has found its rhythm after a slow start to the season.
There are many first-year players on this team who just needed a few weeks to gel and get into a rhythm. After two close and tough losses to start the season, the Syosset Braves have been unbeaten in their past three games, with the latest, a 25-6 victory, coming against the Bellmore Braves.
The Syosset Braves 9-year-old team has a two-game unbeaten streak, with a 26-26 tie against a very tough Floral Park squad and a 12-0 Homecoming win against Uniondale. In the tie, the offense lead by a three-touchdown performance by Luca Cutolo and Nicholas Macchia chipping in for his first touchdown of the year on a qb sneak from the 5-yard line. The game went back and forth with Syosset leading most of the game. Floral Park got behind their defense for a 25-yard touchdown pass which made the score 26-26 with a little over a minute left. The Braves defense held tough with a stop of the extra point, now it was time for the Braves offense to go to work. With a little over a minute left, two timeouts and 60 yards to go the Braves started their march and moved the ball to the Floral Park 27. The Braves called their last timeout with six seconds on the clock and called a sweep right, with great lead blocking from Robert Trapeo, Gaige Ciccotto and the offensive line Luca Cutolo was stopped just shy of the goal line with no time left.
The 8-year-old Syosset Braves football team faced the undefeated Elmont Cardinals this past weekend. Syosset was determined to extend their win streak and shut the door on Elmont. Defense would be the key to winning this game as both football teams have proven they can score over the past four weeks.
Syosset struck early by handing the ball to Braden “Speedy” Sosnik who took the opening play 60 yards for the game’s first touchdown. Syosset would add an extra point to take an early 7-0 lead.
