Newsday Baffled by Football Team’s 2-0 Start

September 18, 2011

The boys loosen up during halftime of their win over Wyandanch

Newsday, who ranked our football #14 out of 14 Division IV schools, is amazed by what the Bears have accomplished thus far. Check out the article, “Topsy Turvey First Two Weeks” here or at

You have to love new beginnings, especially if you’re a passionate fan of a program that rarely wins. There’s always hope at the start of a new season. There’s optimism. And it helps when a new coach injects vitality into a lifeless program. All high school players need someone, something to believe in. And when the new guy comes in and says he believes in his players and the future–that kind of confidence builder can go a long way.

When was the last time Half Hollow Hills East, Sachem East, Stony Brook, and Shoreham-Wading River opened the football season with two straight wins?

How about never!

What makes the 2-0 start for these four schools all the more impressive–they were all 0-8 last season–a combined 0-32.

So much for the preseason seeds. How about five of the eight preseason top-seeded public school teams have already lost and we’re only in the second week of the season?

It’s been a wild two weeks with unpredictable finishes and budding stars–a real feel good beginning for those who’ve been down and got back up to taste victory.

What a start to 2011.
