It’s a (relatively) light day on the schedule, which is one of the reasons we scheduled our college recruiting seminar for today at 7:30 p.m. at Mildred Strang Middle School in Yorktown Heights.
Army coach Joe Alberici, Fairfield coach Andy Copelan and former Yorktown/Gettysburg/Syracuse star Joe Ceglia will be our panelists. I’ll be moderating the festivities.
There will also be some news about some newly launched summer recruiting events.
Should be an interesting and informative night. Hope to see you all there.
Now, before we get to today’s games, be sure to scroll down through the posts and check our game report on yesterday’s 13-12 Lakeland/Panas win at John Jay. It was the Rebels’ first win over the Indians in nine seasons and the regular-season game of the year so far in Section 1. We also have posted video interviews with several Rebels players.
Video interviews still to come: Lakeland/Panas coach Jim Lindsay, John Jay coach Nick Savastano and Ridgefield star Matt White.
OK, now to today’s action.
An FCIAC showdown between Ridgefield and Greenwich highlights today’s slate.
Last year, the Tigers beat the Cardinals not once, not twice but three times.
Though Ridgefield, an offensive juggernaut, has been steamrolling, Greenwich is coming off a big, confidence-boosting win over Fairfield Prep.
In Suffolk, Smithtown East is 7-2 and hopes it has what it takes to give West Islip a game. The Lions, of course, are ranked No. 1 in the LaxLessons.com. Top 25 regional rankings.
In the CHSAA, Iona Prep visits red-hot Chaminade, which is No. 2 in the LaxLessons.com Top 25 regional rankings.
In Section 1, Irvington, under first-year coach and former Somers star Drew Werney, hopes to continue its hot start. The Bulldogs play at Croton-Harmon at 4:30 p.m.
Among the 12 other games on the Section 1 slate, Edgemont visits Nanuet at 4:30 p.m.
