Arlington has emerged as a program on the rise in New York’s Hudson Valley.

After finishing 3-14 in 2008, the Admirals improved to 8-10 in 2009, 10-7 in 2010 and 11-6 in 2011 before enjoying a breakthrough run to the Section 1 Class A semifinals i 2012. Last season, an 11-6 season ended with a 7-6 overtime loss to Lakeland/Panas in the sectional quarterfinals.

Will Arlington stay in the Section 1 Class A title hunt in 2014?

For more, we check in with one of the attackmen in New York State, AHS junior Brendan Sunday.

The 6-foot-4 Sunday will be taking his talents to Towson University. You can watch his highlight reel here.

For now, he’s focused on the two remaining varsity seasons he has remaining with Arlington.

Now, here are Brendan’s perspectives on the upcoming season.playerperspective

What have you been doing to get ready for the season?
I’ve been staying in shape playing Varsity basketball for Arlington six days a week. Most of the team has been participating in a strength and speed program at North Star Sports  as well as shooting/stick skills clinics. We also attended three tournaments this past fall.

How does your schedule look, what games are you looking forward to most, and who are some of your scrimmages against?
Our schedule will be challenging as always and we are again playing some of the best teams in Section 1. I’m looking forward to our games against John Jay, Yorktown, Mahopac, Somers and Lakeland/Panas the most. As of now, our scrimmage schedule is not finalized.

What players on your team do you think will surprise some people this season?
We lost most of our starters from last year’s team to graduation. I think there will be a lot of opportunity for many players to step up and have an impact on the field this spring. I think sophomore defensemen Rob Tannenbaum, sophomore midfielder Kevin Litchauer, and senior faceoff d-mid Brendan Wiznewski will surprise people most.

What do you think the strength of your team will be this year?
I feel that our team will be fairly balanced and that we will have many options at all positions

How do you view the race in your league and who do you think some of the contending teams will be?
I feel that the race in our league will be tight as always. Besides us, I’m expecting Brewster and Putnam Valley to be in contention by season’s end.
