COACH'S LETTER 6

Dear Players, On behalf of the entire coaching staff here at St. Anthony’s we would like to congratulate and more importantly thank you for an outstanding 2016 season. You all have a lot to be proud of. All we ever ask of you is to play hard, play with class, and let the winning and losing take care of itself. In looking back on the season there is much to be proud of including, an undefeated regular league season with great wins over Stepinac, Monsignor Farrell, and Cardinal Hayes. Although we did not reach all of our goals it was never because of lack of effort. In closing, we always ask you to be examples, not excuses and you certainly did that. I hope that the friendships you made this season last you a lifetime.

God Bless You and Your Family. Mr. Rich Reichert Head Coach St. Anthony’s Football

BO WATERS M

y name is Bo Waters and I am a senior at St Anthony’s and the starting QB. Unfortunately, in my second game against Chaminade in the 4th quarter I went down and hurt my knee. Leaving the field all I could think was NOT NOW! I had work so hard all summer to be the best QB I could be. Now I wasn’t sure if I was ever going to see the football field again. I went to rehab and worked extremely hard to get back on the field because I wanted to be with my team. I was out for 6 weeks. Being part of this team has been a privilege. Team means never settling for anything but your best. Team means dedication of a group of athletes that come together and give 110% to be the best they can be and to achieve a common goal. Unfortunately, I won’t be playing football in college. I will be heading to West Point to play lacrosse.The one thing I can do to make the world a better place is to be the best person I can be on and off the field.

H

ello, my name is Sean Bryan. Currently, I am a junior running back at St. Anthony’s High School. I’ve been playing football since the 5th grade and was inspired by professional athlete, Walter Payton. I remember wanting to match his speed, agility and overall technique as a running back. Today I can say that playing football truly has been the greatest moments of my entire life. Through Christ and the guidance of the coaching staff, my experience as a football player at Saint Anthony’s has been amazing. Over the course of my football season, I’ve created an everlasting bond with players that I now call my brothers on and off the field. We look out for each other and without them, scoring touchdowns or even staying out of trouble wouldn’t be possible. Up to this day, my goal has always been to play collegiate football and I continue to work towards it every day. Through the grace of God I aspire to live out this dream one day.

t. Anthony’s Football has played a great roll in my life since I was just a freshman. Being a part of this family has helped me throughout my high school career. I have made friends that I will have forever and have been a part of a family that nobody else can say they have been a part of. Playing football at St. Anthony’s has turned me into a man and taught me responsibility, toughness, and perseverance. 

6

The relationships I have made with my teammates and coaches are ones that I will cherish forever. I’m upset that we couldn’t make it all the way this season, but I’m excited to see what next years team has in store. I’m really going to miss stepping onto that field each year with the kids that I have called my family, since I was just 14 years old.

SAINT ANTHONY'S FOOTBALL

SAINT ANTHONY'S READY TO DOMINATE Story By; Nick Portantiere I Photos By: Peter Scifo “Andrew catches everything and he’s a great blocker,” Reichert said of Hancock, who scored five touchdowns last season. “Tyler is very versatile and we may play him on defense, too. He and Andrew are very competitive.” Reichert said that all four senior co-captains are currently fielding scholarship offers from colleges and he is sure that they all will be playing football next year in Division I or Division II. The 2016 season got underway for St. Anthony’s on September 9 with a disappointing 21-20 home defeat to powerful Delbarton of Morristown, NJ. “We lost that game on special teams,” lamented Reichert. Indeed, the Friars missed two PATs and three field goals. One of the field goal attempts was blocked and returned for a touchdown while a potential game-winning 30-yard attempt failed in the final seconds when St. Anthony’s was unable to snap the ball before the game clock ran out. In their CHSFL opener on September 17, the Friars went on the road and recorded a 48-29 trouncing of Chaminade. Quarterback Bo Waters, who passed for 411 yards in the loss to Delbarton, led the offensive explosion by completing 18 of 26 passes for 260 yards and three touchdowns. Sean Bryan carried the ball six times for 112 yards and a touchdown and also made two receptions for 33 yards. Dion Williams had five rushes for 41 yards and grabbed four passes for 41 yards and a touchdown. Terrence Mooney added three receptions for 52 yards and a touchdown.

T

he Oakland Raiders of the National Football League like to boast about their “Tradition of Excellence.” But when it comes to winning championships, the Raiders could learn a thing or two from the St. Anthony’s High School varsity football team.

According to the coach, backup quarterbacks Jack Atkinson and Gershom Delva will now compete for the starting job.

The Friars of South Huntington won the Catholic High School Football League ‘AAA’ Division title 11 times in 13 years from 2001 to 2013, including seven in a row from 2001 to 2007. After uncharacteristically losing in the semifinal playoffs the past two seasons, head coach Rich Reichert and his players are itching to return to the championship game in 2016.

That senior leadership will come largely in the person of the four senior co-captains, all of whom are returning starters.

If they do so, it will be without the services of starting quarterback Bo Waters. A first-year starter in 2016, the 6’4”, 190 lbs. senior threw for nearly 700 yards in his first two games, but he suffered a season-ending knee injury in the second game of the season, a 48-29 victory over Chaminade on September 17. “I feel terrible for Bo because he was playing so well, but injuries are part of the game,” said Reichert, who is now in his 30th year as the head coach at St. Anthony’s and has won 14 CHSFL titles at the school.

1(800)680-3213

“We have adequate backups, but with Bo going down, it’s going to be up to our senior leadership to get the kids to believe that they can still get it done,” he said.

Reichert discussed his team’s prospects for the remainder of the season. “Even though we lost our starting quarterback we still have plenty of skill players on offense,” said the coach. “Good receivers, good running backs and a solid offensive line. And we have some juniors who are really good, too. So I still feel we’ll be in the hunt.”

ORDER A

Leading the way is Dan Lord, a 6’5”, 235 lbs. defensive end/ tackle. Lord recorded two sacks in the season opener against Delbarton of New Jersey and followed that up with two more against Chaminade. “Dan has a great motor and he runs exceptionally well for someone his size,” said Reichert. “We’ve built our defense around him.” Charles Barsella, a 6’2”, 220 lbs. linebacker, led the team in tackles a year ago. “He’s a true leader on the field and he has the respect of all the players,” said Reichert. Then there are the two wide receivers, Andrew Hancock (6’1”, 185 lbs.) and Tyler Palminteri (5’10”, 170 lbs.).

SAINT ANTHONY’S CLAIMS TOP SPOT IN THE PLAYOFFS

shock Monsignor Farrell. Sophomore cornerback, Nick Espada led the way on defense grabbing two interceptions, and the defense followed his lead by forcing three turnovers to help stage the biggest comeback of the season. These turnovers woke up the non-existent offense, leading to their amazing come back. This win gave the Friars a 5-2 record going into the final regular season game.

I

n the first half of the season, the St. Anthony’s varsity football team suffered some set backs, including losing their quarterback to an injury. After losing two games early in the season, to Delbarton, out of New Jersey and Christ the King, out of Queens, the Friars found a way to overcome and set things right the rest of the season.

After the 14-12 loss to CTK, St. Anthony’ bounced back in a big way against St. Peter’s. St. Anthony’s took an early 14-0 lead in the first quarter. They carried that lead into the third quarter, where they added three more points and gave up St. Peter’s only points of the game. The Friars defense held St. Peter’s scoreless in the first half and again in the fourth quarter to hold for the victory. This game was also the debut of Greg Campisi, a sophomore quarterback. Campisi shined in his first start going 9-of-18 for 153 yards and two touchdowns. This gave the Friars a 2-0 record in the Catholic High School Football League. In their next game, they played league foe Stepinac. This is always a tight battle. The Friars found themselves in a shoot out in this game. At half time, St. Anthony’s was leading 14-9 setting up an exciting second half. In the third quarter, both teams scored a touchdown bring the score to 21-16. In the fourth quarter, St. Anthony’s pulled away scoring 17 more points continuing their winning streak. Campisi continued to shine in this game throwing for 275 yards and four touchdowns. They defeated Stepinac 38-23, ending Stepinac’s 28 game CHSFL winning streak. This victory put the Friars back on the winning side with a record of 3-2. They continued to dominate in their next two games, defeating Holy Cross 48-21 and Monsignor Farrell 29-23. The game against Monsignor Farrell showed the grit of the Friars Football team. They didn’t show up for three quarters, finding themselves in a 23-0 hole with three minutes remaining in the third quarter. It did not look like they had what it would take to make a come back on the road. St. Anthony’s dug deep and were able to score 29 unanswered points to

St. Anthony’s would finish the regular season with a home game against Cardinal Hayes. This game would show the fight in the Friars team. St. Anthony’s took a comfortable 27-18 lead into the second half of the game. It was looking like St. Anthony’s would walk away with an easy win, when neither team scored in the third quarter, but then the fourth quarter happened. The Friars added 14 more points in the fourth quarter, which would prove to just be enough to get the win. They gave up 22 points pulling Cardinal Hayes within one point, but that is how it would end. Tyler Palminteri was the factor of this game, rushing eight times for 83 yards and three touchdowns. This victory clinched the number one spot in the CHSFL AAA giving them a bye to start the playoffs. Ending the regular season with huge victories, is what they needed to boost their confidence going into the playoffs. They entered the playoffs with a 6-0 record in the CHSFL AAA. The first round bye gave the Friars extra time off before meeting with Cardinal Hayes again, but this time in the semifinals. In this game, senior quarterback Bo Waters returned. The game was close in the first half, with St. Anthony’s trailing 21-14. They tied things up in the third quarter, sending them into the fourth quarter with the game knotted at 35. Unfortunately, the Friars were unable to put up points, while Cardinal Hayes added 14 more to take the victory. Waters went 8-of-22 for 177 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in his return to the team. St. Anthony’s finished their season ranked number 10 in News 12 Varsity’s LI Large Schools power rankings. They ended the season with six wins and three losses. Andrew Hancock was fifth in AAA in receiving yards with 473 yards and Dion Williams finished fifth in rushing yards in AAA with 536 yards. Two players received NYCHSFL awards, Steven Beseler received a Golden Eleven Award and Dan Lord won the AAA Lineman of the Year award. This team was able to overcome the loss of their starting quarterback to injury early in the season to become the number one team in the CHSFL when the season ended. They have a lot to be proud of. The Friars might not have gotten the championship, but they put St. Anthony’s back in the thick of things by claiming the number one seed. This team will be back next year hungry and ready to claim that AAA title.

y name is Anthony Henry and I am a senior on the team. I have been playing football since I was in 2nd grade. I started playing football because it was the only sport I really liked when I was young. Now that I am older I see that I played because of the friendship and camaraderie you develop with your teammates. I have made so many friends from being on this team. My teammates are more than friends they are my brothers. This team has shaped me to be a more social and independent individual. I now take responsibility for my mistakes instead of finding excuses to get around the consequences. I do not plan on playing football in college, I plan on getting a quality education and get a degree in my intended major.

y name is Philip Platania and I am a junior at St. Anthony’s High School. I began playing football at the age of five and loved it from the very first practice. I came into St. Anthony’s not knowing anyone but I began playing football for the freshmen team in August of 2014. I immediately created a bond with my teammates that would never be broken, My best friends in the school are all my football teammates. There is just something about grinding everyday for four months straight, all fighting for the same goal of being the best, that brings teammates together and creates a true family on and off the field. My team means everything to me, it is a great group of guys that all have each others back no matter what. Our team faced a lot of adversity this season between, being counted out by everyone, injuries, coaching changes and early season losses. Despite all that, the team never gave up we achieved becoming the regular season champs by being undefeated in the AAA division. Being on the football team has taught me many important life lessons such as responsibility, teamwork, and determination. All of these lessons apply to everyday activities and have helped me to become the successful student athlete I am today. I hope to continue my career in college because I feel that playing football helps prepare you for life almost as much as school does. Also the idea of playing college football has been a dream of mine ever since I began playing football. Football is a great sport and playing at St. Anthony’s is special because every coach is there to help the players, which makes playing for them very enjoyable and memorable.

To me team means working together and functioning as one. Over these four years, being a Friar has shown me a brotherhood that is selfless. They always have your back no matter what.

What I can to do to make the world better is to spread positiveness and happiness to everyone around me.

y name is Nicholas Scozzari, I am a junior and I play football at St.Anthony’s High School. I am 5 feet 7 inches tall and 160 pounds. I’m a defensive back and started at free safety this past varsity season. I may be very undersized at my height and weight, but I manage to find ways to make an impact in every way that I can. I led the team and was tied for first with other private schools on Long Island for interceptions. Team to me is a group of people that work together as a family for the same purpose. A team has each others back no matter what happens. If any adversity comes to them they stick together and work through any trouble or issues that come their way. My team is a group of brothers that are always there for each other. Even when the worst situations came our way, we fought through it by staying together and not giving up on each other. Being on this team has molded and shaped me into a stronger person. It has taught me many things such as what a true team is and how well they work together as brothers. This team has ultimately made me into a stronger individual and a better person. I have learned how to be a leader and continue to learn more and more each day. I developed more of an understanding of having responsibilities and how to be part of a team. I am hoping to continue my career with football through college at the highest level that I am able to. I will continue to work and perform to the best of my ability. I hope to exceed my potential and climb to new heights that I didn’t believe I could reach. One thing I could do to make this world a better place, is by helping people if they need it. Whether it is my community or my friends I can be there for them and help them in times of need.

aving grown up in the shadow of St. Anthony’s High School (I live a ¼ of mile away from the south end zone), I always knew that I wanted to attend New York State’s premiere school for athletics–going to football games there since before I could walk certainly played a big role in my decision to become a Friar. My four years of football at St. Anthony’s has served to reinforce what a lifetime of playing sports has taught me, that no one single person is responsible for the success of a team; that individual players don’t score touchdowns, teams do. Football is the ultimate team sport and through playing it, I’ve learned firsthand that every player and every play matters, that the end result of the game is truly the summation of every player’s effort and execution on every play. The game has also served to sharpen my skills in my other passion—Rugby, a sport that I have been chosen to represent the NY Metro area in Regional AllStar Tournaments the past two years. This past season was my 10th season playing organized football and while it will likely be my last, I will continue to pursue my athletic career as a collegiate rugby player. As I head off to college, I know that I will be leaving a lot behind, but I also know that I will be taking the lessons and skills that I learned paying football with me to the next level.

y name is Heron MaurisseauO’Neal. I am currently a junior and a member of St. Anthony’s High School Varsity football and track teams. I am 6 foot, 170 pounds wide receiver, of Haitian-American descent. I have been playing football since I was 7 years old (running back, slot receiver, and safety). The first time I stepped on the field with pads, I knew that football was going to be very special to me. Football is more than a sport, it is a lifestyle. I love the game, scoring touchdowns, and the camaraderie of my teammates. In 5th grade, a math teacher spoke words of wisdom about the culture of Saint Anthony’s High School. Since then I wanted to be nothing other than a FRIAR. I have learned the importance of dedication in a competitive culture that promotes excellence as a Friar. In the arena of football, team is everything. One Friar picks another Friar up no matter what. Working hard and training together for the common goal of winning championships is key on any team. This team really showed me what adversity is all about on the varsity level. We had challenges early on in the season. I learned how to embraces these obstacles, as well as, the fellow Friar who faces the difficulty. We rallied behind our young quarterback. Showing encouragement, motivating, and constant reassurance, and prayer towards a fellow Friar are foundational principles of a Championship team at Saint Anthony’s. It has always been my dream to play Division 1 football in college. My goal is to play football at West Virginia University like my stepfather. One thing I can do to make the world a better place is to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ. I would truly love to do that because it is something my family, more importantly my mom, likes to do. If I do that I know it would make God, and my mom extremely happy.

ST. ANTHONY’S FOOTBALL

PHILIP PLATANIA

y name is Philip Platania and I am a junior at St. Anthony’s High School. I began playing football at the age of five and loved it from the very first practice. I came into St. Anthony’s not knowing anyone but I began playing football for the freshmen team in August of 2014. I immediately created a bond with my teammates that would never be broken, My best friends in the school are all my football teammates. There is just something about grinding everyday for four months straight, all fighting for the same goal of being the best, that brings teammates together and creates a true family on and off the field. My team means everything to me, it is a great group of guys that all have each others back no matter what. Our team faced a lot of adversity this season between, being counted out by everyone, injuries, coaching changes and early season losses. Despite all that, the team never gave up we achieved becoming the regular season champs by being undefeated in the AAA division. Being on the football team has taught me many important life lessons such as responsibility, teamwork, and determination. All of these lessons apply to everyday activities and have helped me to become the successful student athlete I am today. I hope to continue my career in college because I feel that playing football helps prepare you for life almost as much as school does. Also the idea of playing college football has been a dream of mine ever since I began playing football. Football is a great sport and playing at St. Anthony’s is special because every coach is there to help the players, which makes playing for them very enjoyable and memorable.

Hi, I’m Andrew Hancock I am a senior captain and a 2 year starter at wide receiver. I love all aspects of the game of football. Growing up I was a multi-sport athlete, but I always had one love and that was football. Growing up in a football crazed family my uncles, father, as well as my brother all encouraged me to play and loved to watch me in action. Since my older brother Raymond went to St. Anthony’s, I grew up in the St. Anthony’s scene and got an over view of the school and what it was all about through him. The first time I ever went to a St. Anthony’s event, was one of their football games. I watched St. Anthony’s play Monsignor Farrell. I stood there in the bleachers amazed by the electric atmosphere, the high level of competition, and the pride and sense of brother hood that each player expressed. I knew from that day on I wanted to be a Friar. But I didn’t understand what it meant to be a Friar until I was one, my junior year was when I started to grasp this role. As a captain this year, I tried my best to express what that role meant to all of my fellow teammates. Being a part of the Friar family is like being a part of a team. The sense of team and the Friar family means a lot to me, Coach Reichert does a fantastic job on emphasizing team and what it means. He has taught me that team is all about togetherness and brother hood, and if you’re willing to leave it all out on the field every Friday night for the guy to the left of you, as well as the guy to the right of you you’ll have a brotherly bond that will result in wins. Being a part of this team has taught me a lot about patience, leadership, and discipline. This sport and team has molded me into the young man I am today, without this sport I truly believe I would be lost and not nearly as successful as I am today. Football has made me more accountable, versatile, and a hard worker. I will take these lessons with me into college and into the work force, because I know I will go far with them. I do intend to play college football at the next level, where ever I may end up and I plan to study business. Playing football at St. Anthony’s has been the best experience of my life. I have made friends for a life time and memories that will last a life time. #BLACKRAIN

ootball is the ultimate team game. My first year of playing varsity is a testament to that, I learned very quickly that every player must do their job, nothing less or nothing more to be successful. Being a part of this team has been an tremendous honor to me. Being able to represent St. Anthony’s and play for the guys next to me was great experience I will never take for granted. As a sophomore on team filled with upperclassmen things couldn’t have went better and I was part of the family just like everyone else. Going through this season and offseason with my brothers and being part of this team has showed me that hard work and perseverance results in success on the field. I am a better person today because of the hardships and success I went through throughout the season with my brothers. My number one future goal is to win the AAA Championship next year. Seeing the seniors in the locker room after our semi-final loss put a really bad taste in my mouth. They all worked so hard and deserved a shot at the title. After seeing them leave St. Anthony’s without a ring, made me realize that is not how I want to graduate. I do have goals of being able to play college football. Football is my passion and I love playing it and I would love to pursue to keep playing in college. One thing I could do to help make the world a better place, is too give back to people who are less fortunate than I am, especially during the holiday season. Also, to treat everyone like I’d want to be treated.

y name is Alex Kontos, and I love this football team more than any other team I was ever a part of. St. Anthony’s football has not only provided me with a chance to improve my skills on the football field but also the opportunity to form a brotherhood with all of my teammates. Throughout the season, my family and I fell on hard times in regards to my father again, but my football brothers had my back and were there for me when I needed support most. Due to my father’s health he couldn’t make the games, but I had the unique chance to honor my father on his birthday by doing the pre-game chant before we played Christ the King. That is a moment I will cherish the rest of my life. Being on this team has taught me to not be selfish and to always have your brother’s back and at the same time know that someone has your back also. My future goals are to became a nurse practitioner or a physician and help people because I truly enjoy helping others. I am looking at some colleges that have my academic major and the opportunity for me to play college football. I am looking forward to playing in college because I truly enjoy playing football. One thing I can do to make the world a better place is provide help and experience to those who are struggling in their everyday lives. I say this because my father has been a very ill man for years and I know exactly what it means to struggle.

t is such a blessing to be part of a team so special. As a junior, I learned so much in my first year in varsity football. I learned what St. Anthony’s football is really about. Playing linebacker for the first time this year was a learning experience and I gained so much. In my 3 years in the St. Anthony’s football program, I became the player I would never have become if I stayed in my old public school. I thank God for my coaches, teammates, my opportunities and a great season.

y name is Terrence Mooney.  I have been playing football since I was five years old and have been playing for St.Anthony’s High School for the past four years. Being on the football team has been a great experience for me.  I have met many friends whom I might not have otherwise been privileged to know. The St. Anthony’s football team is a family that I was glad to be part of. My coaches have been so helpful on and off the field. They have taught me much about the game of football and also how to carry myself off the field.  Although I am going to college to play lacrosse, football will always be something I enjoy and will truly miss.

rom the age of 6, I fell in love with the sport of football and in 8th grade I made the decision to come to St. Anthony’s, the greatest football program on the Island. I was both excited and nervous when we started practice in the summer of 2013. It didn’t take long for me to form a bond with my teammates, from that season on we were more then just friends playing football together, we were brothers. Through the wins and losses we stuck together as a family, working our butts off in practice and having fun while doing it. We all came from different parts of the Island and we always reminisced about how we used to play against one and other when we were younger, but we all found pride in this school and this program. Since we met each other before freshman year, we all had one goal, to win St. Anthony’s a championship. I never met a group of guys more dedicated and hardworking then my brothers on the football team. I learned so much about the game of football from this program, this is something that most kids will never experience in their life. Playing for this school has truly been a blessing that I will never take for granted. From the “Sunday Mornings of Fun” pushing us to our physical limits to the practicing twice a day in the summer’s most hottest days, this program has made me a better athlete, football player and person than I could have dreamed of at my public school. This past season didn’t end the way we wanted but we went out fighting as brothers and that’s more then anything I could have asked for. The experience and bond that this team has brought me is something I will always be grateful for. Teammates for four years, Friars forever!

hen you think of Friar football, you think of greatness, success, and integrity. I am proud to represent this team with those characteristics behind my back. However, holding to a high standard every day is not easy. If you play on this team, you better be prepared to work hard. Hard work is what this team has taught me. I have always been a hard, honest worker. However, the responsibility that this team has given me has taught me to work harder than I ever have before. It has taught me that nothing comes easy in life. Whether it is from grade school, high school, or even competing for a job; if you want to be the best you need to give it all you have. Every day.  Being a part of this team is one of the smartest decisions I have ever made in my life. Practicing every day with brothers that care about one another is priceless. Many people who aren’t part of the team would not understand the unbreakable bond that you form with your teammates. When one of us goes down, the team is there to bring him back up. We can all rely on each other. This team is not just a football team, but it is a brotherhood.  Playing high school football is only one chapter of my life. I hope to have football in my next chapter: college. College football has always been a dream of mine. I hope I have the opportunity to be part of another family as great as the one here at St. Anthony’s. Life without football will be life with football  characteristics. The loyalty to an organization, the bond I formed among my brothers, and the will to work hard will help me to reach my greatest potential in life. I plan on using the characteristics I have gained from football, and applying them to the real world some day for the better.

y name is Grayson Cherubino and I play defensive end for Saint Anthony’s. The 3 months that I spent with my teammates and coaches was arguably the best experience of my life.  We went to work every single day and truly became a family.   I love the game of football and I am blessed to be able to play this great game with my fellow teammates. The season did not end as we anticipated, however next year we are coming back stronger.  My goal is to do anything possible to ensure that we bring the championship trophy back to South Huntington, where it belongs for our senior leaders who were not able to win the title. I hope to play Ivy League football and pursue a way to make the world a better place.

y name is Charles Michael Barsella and I am one of four Captains on the St. Anthony’s Football Team, class of 2017. I joined St. Anthony’s as a freshman and every experience since the moment I stepped onto the campus has helped mold me into the man I am today. I started at the Middle Linebacker position my entire four years at St. Ant’s. My Freshman year, Junior Varsity year, and 2 years on Varsity were nothing less than amazing. From working during the offseason to get better with my brothers, to battling it out in every game where we relied on one another to get the job done made for an exciting season. Nothing was better than the experiences we shared together, through the bad times and the good. Team is the first thing that comes to mind when I think about the sport I love - football. To me, team means that there are a band of brothers, starters and non-starters that would do anything for each other and will push one another to be greater than the last practice, than the last game. Everyone on a football team is just as important as the other. A starter may be the starter, but without the rest of the team, the starter will not get better. The balance of the team is a necessity; they are needed to push and help season their fellow teammate to bring the best out of him. Being on this football team has showed me that there is always a better person within somebody. Throughout the season I have seen junior players and sophomore players mature in a way that is hard to do without the sport of football itself. At the beginning of the season there were very inexperienced players, but, as time moved forward, they matured into young men I’d call my brothers any day. I would do anything for them. As last year the same happened to me - I matured to a great extent. This season I know I grew into a true leader, one who leads by example. I set the tone and the rest of my brothers followed and rose to my level. This team showed me that I can elevate the people around me so that we are all successful in our endeavors. Today I am a hardworking, dedicated, serious, but humble man. I have achieved these traits through my time playing St. Anthony’s High School Football. After my career as a Student Athlete at St. Anthony’s High School, I will be playing college football and studying pre-law. If not a Professional Football Player, I wish to be an upright and successful lawyer! I know I will be successful in life either way, that is what St. Anthony’s has prepared me for, greatness. Due to my personality and my desire to elevate those around me, I can help improve the world by sharing my views and methods of success with them. I will show people how to live in an upright manner through example of my own life.

I

have learned so much from playing football since I was seven years old.  Since that time, I have had the opportunity to play many different positions, on many different teams. I have developed so many amazing friendships with other players and coaches, learning so much from each of them. I have found my niche on defense where I am currently a junior Linebacker. Each day I strive to be better than the the previous day.  St. Anthony’s has embedded in me the commitment  to work hard and to strive to be the best. I go about this through hard work, dedication, discipline and focus; whether it is in the weight room, practice or in games. I will always give my team 100%. Winning a Catholic State Championship for St. Anthony’s with my teammates is my ultimate goal. None of this will be possible without the high standards  our coaches set and the school tradition we have. The coaches demand perfection , not only in building great athletes & teams but on building impeccable character. I owe a lot of gratitude to each coach I have had throughout the years, for what they have taught me on and off the field. This seasons’s experience has left me wanting more for all of us, the redemption for our graduating seniors. The quality of our athletes and the level of competition we face, is motivation to push ourselves to work harder in the off-season and come back even stronger. We are not finished,we have more work to do, and I will not stop until we are back on top.

I

’m Matthew Savarese, a junior at Saint Anthony’s High School, and starting center for the varsity football team.  I am proud to be a part of the Saint Anthony’s football program.  Being part of the team is like having a second family. All of us guys committed to the team and each other working together for a common goal - to win!  Being part of this team has made me feel responsible and accountable to my coaches and teammates. It has given me a sense of pride and accomplishment. I am happy to have one more year, my senior year as a part of the Saint Anthony’s Family.  As I look toward the future, I will attend college and would like to continue to play football at the college level if given the opportunity.   One thing I could do to help make the world a better place is to help spread kindness.   On a personal note, I am blessed with two loving parents and have  two younger brothers, Michael and Nicholas who wish to become part of the Saint Anthony’s family once they attend high school.  I am also grateful for my wonderful family of grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins who always enjoy coming to the football games and cheering for the team, with all of their cowbells and noise makers. Go Friars!!

eing a part of Saint Anthony’s football team has been a privilege and an honor. I joined the team my sophomore year and started out playing defensive line, but I switched to guard at the beginning of this season. My proudest moments were winning the JV Championship and having an unbelievable Junior season. Saint Anthony’s football team is my second family. We pick each other up when one of us is down, and we never leave a man behind. One of the most important lessons I have learned from playing at St. Anthony’s is to always have each other’s backs. I have made many friends and memories from two seasons of practices and games. I hope to play in college, and if I’m lucky, it will be as foundational and inspirational an experience as the one I’ve had here. Afterwards, I’d also like to continue that spirit of working as a team towards a common goal in the Army. I’m excited to take the lessons I learned playing football and use them to serve my country.

I

t was a great experience playing for St. Anthony’s over the past four years. My teammates are my family and I’ll never forget playing with them. Even though our season ended earlier than we would have liked, we fought as a team through all the challenges that faced us and were able to overcome them. We proved a lot of people wrong by defeating every team in the AAA and finishing as the top team in the regular season. This team helped to teach me that any obstacle, in the way, can be overcome with hard work and dedication. I have played football since I was five years old and hope to continue playing football in college where I would like to pursue an engineering degree. I’m proud to call myself a Friar and am glad to have played along such a great group of men.

y name is Maguire Horl. I am a proud football friar. I play right tackle on the Saint Anthony’s football team. This football team is a close family unit that shares a great love for football. My coaches and teammates are important people in my life. Through hard work in the summer and fall workouts, the football team has become more integral in my daily life. Winning the JV Championship last year was an awesome experience. The positive experiences from football have helped mold me and influenced my love for football. My love for football is great and growing. I hope to get to play football in college, following my dad’s footsteps. My father Larry played football at the college of the Holy Cross. We have visited Holy Cross often for football games and other functions. I hope to continue my football career in college. I also hope to help the world by becoming an educator and coach in the future.

I

am Daniel Lord, I am a senior and finished my last year of Friar football.  I have been a part of the St. Anthony’s football program since my freshmen year of high school. This program has meant a lot to me throughout my four years at St. Anthony’s this program taught me to be discipline, always work hard, to be a leader on off the field and overall just build better character. The coaches main focus is always about character  I can guarantee that I would not be in the position and the person I have became without this program. The 2016 team, was a team I will never forget. At the start of this season, we were all just friends and acquaintances. But at the end of the season, I am honored to call everyone my brother and I have developed relationships with people on this team that will last for countless years to come. My future goals are to attend West Point to play division one football and also to give back to the United States and serve in our military. It is an honor and a privilege to be attending such a prestigious school. I cannot thank this program and the coaches for supporting me as well as helping me throughout the recruiting process. I am excited to continue my football career at the highest level possible. It is a great opportunity for me to be at such a great and amazing educational school.  One thing I can do to make the world better is to spread my positive energy to the people I meet. This is very important to me, because I believe that every day you should enjoy it, like it is your last and just enjoy your time everyday

My name is Jordan Stewart and I am an offensive lineman on Saint Anthony’s High School varsity football team. Playing for Saint Anthony’s over the past four years has been a blessing. Why? – Because I had the opportunity to play with the best athletes on Long Island. This experience has definitely made me a better football player and individual both on and off the field. Along the way, I have created lots of memories and valuable friendships and I am fortunate to have teammates that I can call my brothers. Playing football for this school is so amazing! Friday night games are thrilling and our fan base is one of the best on the island. Many people (classmates, friends, family members, former coaches, Brother Gary, and even students who don’t attend St. Anthony’s) come to the games. That’s why it’s so special playing on one of the best teams in the Tri-State. The coaching staff at Saint Anthony’s is unbelievable; each coach knows what they are doing and has very high standards. They push us every day in practice to do better and to excel. The lessons/values that I have gained during this journey includes: a) what the word team means, b) always work as hard as if your coaches are watching you all the time and to give 110 % of yourself with everything that you do, and c) never give up on yourself. Unfortunately, this is my last year ever putting the pads on and hitting. I look forward to the next chapter in my life which is focusing on my academics at Penn State University. Best wishes in the future to the entire team and coaching staff.

Being on this team shaped me into the person I am today because the seniors taught all of us so much and formed a bond with all of us that can’t be broken. In the future I plan on going to college to major in political science and then continue into law school. If the opportunity presented itself I would defiantly love to continue to play football in college. I believe one thing I can do to make this world a better place is if I make it all the way through law school, doing something for the government to help make this country a better place.

T

he Saint Anthony’s football team is my family. For the past four years I have been a Friar and have loved every second of it. Playing football in black and gold has been one of the best experiences of my life. Being a part of this team has taught me a lot about myself. Football is a struggle; it tests your abilities both physically and mentally. This game has taught me hard work, determination, and to be hungry for success. I’ve learned to do a good job every time I get on the field. Taking a“play off”is easy, but there’s no glory in easy. Struggle breeds greatness and that’s why football is, great. Suiting up on a Friday night and going to war with my teammates is something that I will never forget. When my time as a Friar is over there a many things I will miss. I will miss bonds with teammates, pre game speeches by coach Reichert, and being in the locker room after a big win. Football is a game that I love. It has shaped me into the man I am today and taught me valuable lessons that I will keep with me my whole life. Unfortunately, I will not be playing college football. Which means this fall is my last time being a“football player”. I will never forget my time on Cy Donnelly field, and I will cherish my relationships with coaches that are like fathers and teammates that are like brothers.

Over the past four years, we have become more like family, always there for one another. The coaches do a great job, stressing the importance of each individual position, yet at the same time, creating a mind-set of working together as one team. I will really miss all my teammates. While I am disappointed our team didn’t win a “ring”, I have great confidence that my younger teammates will bring St. Anthony’s back to the top. Friars Forever

y Junior season was one of ups and downs, but it is one that I will never forget. I will always remember the miraculous comeback against Msgr.Farrell and going crazy with everyone on the sideline, playing on homecoming night against Holy Cross, and beating Archbishop Stepinac. This team has helped show me that seventy people can come together, become one and form something great.

SAINT ANTHONY’S CLAIMS TOP SPOT IN THE PLAYOFFS

Story By: Jaclynkelli Kronemberg I Photos by: Morgan Harrison

I

n the first half of the season, the St. Anthony’s varsity football team suffered some set backs, including losing their quarterback to an injury. After losing two games early in the season, to Delbarton, out of New Jersey and Christ the King, out of Queens, the Friars found a way to overcome and set things right the rest of the season.

After the 14-12 loss to CTK, St. Anthony’ bounced back in a big way against St. Peter’s. St. Anthony’s took an early 14-0 lead in the first quarter. They carried that lead into the third quarter, where they added three more points and gave up St. Peter’s only points of the game. The Friars defense held St. Peter’s scoreless in the first half and again in the fourth quarter to hold for the victory. This game was also the debut of Greg Campisi, a sophomore quarterback. Campisi shined in his first start going 9-of-18 for 153 yards and two touchdowns. This gave the Friars a 2-0 record in the Catholic High School Football League. In their next game, they played league foe Stepinac. This is always a tight battle. The Friars found themselves in a shoot out in this game. At half time, St. Anthony’s was leading 14-9 setting up an exciting second half. In the third quarter, both teams scored a touchdown bring the score to 21-16. In the fourth quarter, St. Anthony’s pulled away scoring 17 more points continuing their winning streak. Campisi continued to shine in this game throwing for 275 yards and four touchdowns. They defeated Stepinac 38-23, ending Stepinac’s 28 game CHSFL winning streak. This victory put the Friars back on the winning side with a record of 3-2. They continued to dominate in their next two games, defeating Holy Cross 48-21 and Monsignor Farrell 29-23. The game against Monsignor Farrell showed the grit of the Friars Football team. They didn’t show up for three quarters, finding themselves in a 23-0 hole with three minutes remaining in the third quarter. It did not look like they had what it would take to make a come back on the road. St. Anthony’s dug deep and were able to score 29 unanswered points to WWW.ULTIMATEATHLETEMAGAZINE.COM


shock Monsignor Farrell. Sophomore cornerback, Nick Espada led the way on defense grabbing two interceptions, and the defense followed his lead by forcing three turnovers to help stage the biggest comeback of the season. These turnovers woke up the non-existent offense, leading to their amazing come back. This win gave the Friars a 5-2 record going into the final regular season game. St. Anthony’s would finish the regular season with a home game against Cardinal Hayes. This game would show the fight in the Friars team. St. Anthony’s took a comfortable 27-18 lead into the second half of the game. It was looking like St. Anthony’s would walk away with an easy win, when neither team scored in the third quarter, but then the fourth quarter happened. The Friars added 14 more points in the fourth quarter, which would prove to just be enough to get the win. They gave up 22 points pulling Cardinal Hayes within one point, but that is how it would end. Tyler Palminteri was the factor of this game, rushing eight times for 83 yards and three touchdowns. This victory clinched the number one spot in the CHSFL AAA giving them a bye to start the playoffs. Ending the regular season with huge victories, is what they needed to boost their confidence going into the playoffs. They entered the playoffs with a 6-0 record in the CHSFL AAA. The first round bye gave the Friars extra time off before meeting with Cardinal Hayes again, but this time in the semifinals. In this game, senior quarterback Bo Waters returned. The game was close in the first half, with St. Anthony’s trailing 21-14. They tied things up in the third quarter, sending them into the fourth quarter with the game knotted at 35. Unfortunately, the Friars were unable to put up points, while Cardinal Hayes added 14 more to take the victory. Waters went 8-of-22 for 177 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in his return to the team. St. Anthony’s finished their season ranked number 10 in News 12 Varsity’s LI Large Schools power rankings. They ended the season with six wins and three losses. Andrew Hancock was fifth in AAA in receiving yards with 473 yards and Dion Williams finished fifth in rushing yards in AAA with 536 yards. Two players received NYCHSFL awards, Steven Beseler received a Golden Eleven Award and Dan Lord won the AAA Lineman of the Year award. This team was able to overcome the loss of their starting quarterback to injury early in the season to become the number one team in the CHSFL when the season ended. They have a lot to be proud of. The Friars might not have gotten the championship, but they put St. Anthony’s back in the thick of things by claiming the number one seed. This team will be back next year hungry and ready to claim that AAA title.

This team and the guys are the best group of athletes I’ve ever been a part of. I truly treasure every time I step on the field, whether it’s practice or game I thank God for being a part of it. This season has definitely made me not only a better player but a better person. The coaches work us but no other coaches made the defensive line work as hard as we did. All year coach Minucci and coach Bresseler did a phenomenal job coaching our Dline and I’m very thankful. It’s a blessing to have them as our coaches. I plan to play at the next level, it is my goal to be a student athlete in college and be a part of another great organization. Being a junior, I have a lot of decisions and time. I plan to work hard to get myself prepared for the next level. One thing I can do to make the world better is by accepting everyone, even if they aren’t your friend.

I

am a senior in high school and I am from the small town of Bayport. In my opinion, being on a team means coming together with a group of people who all have the same goal. St.Anthony’s football is exactly that. All of the exhausting practices I have experienced in the last 4 years, have shaped me into a better human being. All the adversity that came our way, has shaped all of us into better people. Although this was my last football season, this really was a memorable one and my future is a bright one in other ways. I am going to take the lessons I have learned and only make any tough decisions that I will have to make for the right reasons. I will never act for my own self interest because the most important lesson Coach Reichert has taught is to not be selfish.

ST. ANTHONY’S FOOTBALL

I

feel honored to have been part of such an incredible football program. To me, playing at St. Anthony’s is more than just high school football. Over the past four years, we have become more like family, always there for one another. The coaches do a great job, stressing the importance of each individual position, yet at the same time, creating a mind-set of working together as one team. I will really miss all my teammates. While I am disappointed our team didn’t win a “ring”, I have great confidence that my younger teammates will bring St. Anthony’s back to the top. Friars Forever
