Sayville Football's GOLDEN Boys
Taking home their third Rutgers Trophy at the Suffolk County Football Association’s annual dinner, the undefeated (12-0) Golden Flashes Sayville Football team has again made history.
When Sayville won the Class III LI Championship against Lawrence in the November 27th Championship game at Stony Brook, they had already been the only team that was undefeated among public schools this year. During that game, they set new records for Long Island varsity football history, including the LIC-record six rushing touchdowns by Zach Sirico, and achieved the highest-scoring game ever played in New York State. Their quarterback Steven Ferreira broke records both in passing yardage and touchdowns, surpassing the 36-year accomplishments of Tony Capozzoli (St. Dominic) back in 1975. For being Suffolk County’s most outstanding quarterback, Ferreira garnered this year’s Boomer Esiason Award.
Now with their third Rutgers Trophy, their first was in 1972 and their second was in 2004, Sayville is the undisputed winner against other record-setting Long Island Champs this season: Class I William Floyd, Class II Newfield, and Class IV John Glenn. Kudos also go to Sayville’s Rob Hoss for this second Rutgers as Sayville’s Head Coach.
