The Long Island Junior Soccer League recently announced that Ryan DeBenedittis of Syosset will receive the LIJSL’s Frank Gorman Memorial Scholarship.

Frank Gorman was one of the LIJSL’s greatest players ever and arguably the top player on a Brentwood Arsenal team that included now longtime professional player Mike Petke. Frank not only strived for perfection, he achieved it! He starred at Brentwood High School in both soccer and track plus ran more than a 1,000 miles annually to be in top condition, then went on to play soccer at Hofstra. At the age of 26, he was working in life insurance and volunteering with Adelante, where he talked with kids about their future plans, when his life was tragically cut short on January 5, 2003. Frank and his brother John were walking across a Smithtown street when they were hit by a drunk driver. Thousands attended Frank’s wake and funeral as Newsday ran a headline on Page 2, “Everybody Loved Him.”

All My Years of SYAC Softball

Written by Niki Tuck Friday, 24 July 2009 00:00
As I walk off the field for my last time as a SYAC player, I can’t believe it’s over. Over the past nine years I have looked forward to the spring time. This is when softball begins. For me it was a time that I will always treasure.

Over the years I have had many different coaches. All of them have taught me many things over those nine years, but the most important thing that my mom and Jackie taught me, as my coaches for many of those years, is that it isn’t always about winning. They always said, “Go out and have fun.” Some say we may have had too much fun.
