The Farmingdale Hawks had a successful opening to their 2010 season this past Sunday after six weeks of practice during a grueling summer. There are three teams of 5-6 year olds this year. The season kicked off in front of a nice crowd at Howitt Middle School. The White Hawks were led down the field on their first possession by Brandon Greco handing off the ball to Devon Wallick and Jerry Tagliavia. Their first touchdown was scored by Amier McCorvey behind the blocking of Thomas Palermo, Walter Balcaceres, Rick Franco, Dan Napolitano, and Michael Ippoliti. The “White” defense had great line play from Derick Angarita, James Zanelotti, Ty Droge, and Jovanni Gully. JoJo Burriesci, Joseph Bleck, Matthew Brandemarte and Thomas O’Neill made key tackles. Special thoughts go out to Nicky Napolitano who was injured in the second half of the game after playing a phenomenal first half of football. Get better soon Nicky!
