Entering his 20th season as head coach, Mike Spina has experienced his share of success coaching the Floral Park Memorial High School Knights. Last season, however, was one of the most rewarding.


“The guys had this certain toughness where they just didn’t want to lose,” said Spina. “They played emotionally all season,” he added. They upset No. 3 ranked Lynbrook 21-17 in the playoffs. Ultimately, the Knights had their Cinderella season cut in the Nassau County semifinals against No. 2 Plainedge.

Alums Start ‘Ride For Ethan’ Campaign

Written by Jules Alonzo and Christy Hinko, Wednesday, 13 August 2014 11:12

Bright blue eyes, a full head of hair, beautiful smile, and full of energy. At 5 years old, Ethan Demmers is possibly at the healthiest he will be in his life. Ethan was recently diagnosed with Duchenne’s muscular dystrophy (DMD). Typically, people with this disease live only into their 20s. Over the next few years, the disease will slowly attack every muscle in Ethan’s body, eventually causing him to permanently be in a wheelchair. Ethan’s parents are not ready to give up their hope for a cure. They are fully committed to helping find a cure for this deadly illness, not just for their own son, but for all others suffering as well.

Ethan’s father, Dustin Demmers, is an English teacher at Floral Park Memorial High School. To the student body, Demmers can be described as funny, happy, wacky, wild, crazy, and unique among other adjectives. Demmers can be found smiling through the halls, making jokes over the loudspeakers, or making his class into the ideal environment for learning.
