    Congrats to all of this year’s winners. Great job getting the scoop on this Joe.

  2. HVLax says:

    The kid Fischer from GC must be some player to get AA as a soph.

  3. Jericho says:

    A few surprises – thought Set’s Molinari deserved a spot – but all are deserving.

  4. taz says:

    My guess is that Meyer from Manhasset would have been next on the list, then Molinari. Totally surprised re Fischer – even if GC gets 1 because they are GC just didn;t see any soph there getting it.

  5. Syracuse says:


    Great point about Meyer. I think he’s one of the most underrated and overlooked goalies on the Island. He made some saves against both Darien and Garden City that defied logic. As good as Manhasset was offensively this season and as good as Cappellini, Rubertone and Duvnjak were, Meyer was a sort of unsung hero for the Indians. I think he got overlooked because Manhasset played so many lopsided games and wasn’t tested all that much in the state tournament.

    If I was starting a team I’d have no problem with him as a cornerstone in net.

  6. Old Rugger says:

    Aren’t there 2 starting Sophmore’s on that GC defense that are pretty good?

  7. Taz says:

    Rugger – they got a lot of press but neither ever matched up with the other team’s #1. Rossello (Sr) did that.

  8. […] • Long Island Over the last few days I have been working on devising a ranking of programs in New York since 1999 (since laxpower began recording records for its rankings) that is numerically quantifiable.  This is what I have came up with, I figured you would all find this interesting. Base scoring: State championship- 25 points State finals appearance- 15 points State semifinals appearance- 8 points Sectional championship- 5 points […]
