2013 HOMECOMING BLISS

                                              By Mitchell Scott, Knights’ Scribe

     

Elwood, NY-Local realtors with clients wondering about in which Huntington school district to buy a house, need only bring those potential buyers to  annual homecoming at the Elwood John H. Glenn Academic and Athletic Campus (the “GAAC”). For 2013, the GAAC sparkled. The annual parade allowed student artisans to strut their stuff before an appreciative crowd. While all the floats were great, the sophomore class’s work was particularly outstanding. (That float must have taken tremendous work and talent.) The Glenn Marching Band played a rousing National Anthem before the game and rocked the standing room only crowd (proud parents, grandparents, Glenn grads, friends, and neighbors) with a half-time show enhanced by the Kickline’s dance routines. The entrance to the stands was lined with volunteers selling food, raffle-tickets for fabulous prizes, and much sought after Glenn attire. (Special kudos to Swirls and Twirls, the super cool frozen yogurt shop, for their participation and to Allie Moorehead and Makayla McDermott, young Glennsters, that manned the cupcake stand with the best cupcakes ever. Who baked them?) As if all that was not more than enough, the Elwood Buildings and Grounds Department not only had the GAAC field in its usual finely manicured condition but even arranged for a bright blue sky and perfect weather.

 

When game-time against the East Hampton Bonackers arrived, fans in the stands had only two questions. First, could the Knights move the ball against a hard-hitting defense and, second, what is a Bonaker? The answer to the first question depended upon the performance of the Knights’ offensive line: Anthony Pino, Griffin Ryan, Anthony Ferrisi, Matt (“Cha-Cha”) Choinski, Edwin (the “Jewel”) Rubio, and Dan (“Knockout”) Kohout. Working as a unit, these personal protectors of Knight ball-carriers established wide avenues of ambulation. Consider these rushing statistics: 

 

Keeshawn Boodie--8 rushes for 83 yards and a TD

Chris Forsberg--5 rushes for 55 yards and a TD

Dave Wicks--2 rushes for 45 Yards

Najir Brow--5 Rushes  for 47 Yards

Domenique Grange--4 rushes for 25 yards and a TD

Wayne (“OuttaSight”) White--2 rushes 11 Yards 1 TD

 

By the time the gun sounded, the score was Knights 46 Bonackers 6. To answer the second question, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bonackers.

 

The Knights’ Bottom Line: This Saturday the Mighty Knights travel to Riverhead for a 1:00 p.m. kickoff against McGann-Mercy High School. Immediately after, Knight fanatics will be caravanning to Stonybrook University where the Seawolves have a 6:00 p.m. game against the Bryant University Bulldogs. Knight stars of yore will be suited up on both sidelines. For the Seawolves, Malcolm Eugene and Nick (“Guts”) Wagner put on the red and white. For the Bulldogs, John (“Latke”) McDermott will be serving some of his special pancake blocks without honey.
