Your choice of Joe blocker was a solid choice
JOHNNY MOLLO did alot for the kids back in the day at Lawrence including cooking for the players and always being there a tremendous person, rest in peace John.
Yes John Mollo was amazing at Lawrence. Heard many stories and the crowds were huge at all games back then. I was in Hs at the time of the Lawrence/ Hempstead classic and attended that game. There were thousands at that game it was the game of the year at the end of the season. 1961 7-6 final.

I remember the one back from Patchogue at the time.....I believe his name was Lianotonio (spelling). Saw them play Port Jeff on Turkey day in the 60's. Great atmosphere. The kid was good but I still think Rooney was the best back they ever had.

Back on Thanksgiving in the 60's and 70's, I saw some of the great Central Islip teams play against East Islip. Big crowds. There were some solid Smithtown-Hauppague games as well on Turkey Day.

Communities could use these games again.

Just to follow up on that Port Washington brawl against Great Neck North in 1965. It was actually a payback for what happened in the 1964 game at Great Neck. Towards the end of the game with Port Washington leading, GNN's big DE Mike Lardner 6'5' 247 lbs. (some on this forum may remember his father Ring Lardner who was a sports writer for the NY Times) leveled PW's QB John Ballantyne. Lardner knocked him out cold. The PW side went crazy. So in 1965 they paid GNN back in Port Washington, knocking out GNN QB Bob Zutty.

In fact Ashley/Freeport, Martilotta/Lawrence
BRown/Berner and Defillippo/East Meadow were all great coaching records in the 50-60's era

Not sure, but you might be talking about Frank Liantonio(Class of '67) who played with Gary Rooney(Class of '68). The best RB to come out of Pat-Med was Alex Baez(Class of 2003), then Mike Funaro(Class of 1998). After that Kevin Rooney(Class '75) who did have over 2,000 yards rushing in his career, but Baez had 2,198 yards for the 2002 season and Funaro had 1,838 yards for the 1997 season. I would've also thrown in Paul Mazzola (Class of '78) who played on the 1977 playoff team that lost to Sachem.

Most lax programs even the big ones like cuse and duke only have 12 or 13 full scholarship kids on the team at a time most of the kids that signed this year are paying a large sum of their own money. there are a lot more guys getting a full scholarship for football than lax. all the kids signed letters of intent but not all of them got full scholarships just a small amount of money to play
<quoted text>
Full lacrosse scholarship? Non existent. D1 has to divvy up 12 scholarships total among a roster of at least 40. Unless the kid has a GPA > 3.5 and is getting academic money....then there is no full ride.

I still have to say the 2002 LIC Championship team was by far the best Pat-Med team of all time. Besides RB Alex Baez, the had QB Jay Pontieri who threw for over 1,300 yards with 16 td's (also rushed for 671 yards and 6 td's) to his favorite receiver Mike Smeja who had over 700 of those yards and 10 td's.

You are correct defense was taught back then. I've watched the old films of my father playing LB and he was a much better tackler than I was in the 1980's. So I would have to agree with you.
