Long Island football not well thought of.. I also think not playing in state tournament hurts.. I would have loved to have seen Floyd or Freeport with there great teams compete in state tournament.. I thnk we would do very well upstate
Yes, that is a big factor in why LI gets no respect in the NYS football community. Floyd, Connetquot, Sachem North, Farmingdale, Freeport, East Meadow, West Islip, East Islip, etc would have no problem with upstate Class AA teams like New Rochelle, West Genesee, Orchard Park, Monroe-Woodbury, Rush-Henrietta.
The same holds true with schools like Garden City, Sayville Seaford, Miller Place, Lawrence, Mt. Sinai, West Hempstead, etc competing with Aquinas, Sweet Home, Maine-Endwell, Burnt Hills Ballston Lake, Union Endicott, Cornwall Central.
Same thing with Class B & C with schools like Roosevelt, or Babylon competing with Rye, Hornell, Peru, Geneva, Bishop Ludden, Southwestern, Bronxville, Dobbs, Ferry, etc.
LI should be a part of the NYS Tournament.
