In fact Ashley/Freeport, Martilotta/Lawrence
BRown/Berner and Defillippo/East Meadow were all great coaching records in the 50-60's era
DeFilippo was 46-9-1 at East Meadow from 1961-67 winning a Rutgers Cup in 1964. Went on to Derby CT and won multiple championships before retiring. East Meadow football really took a turn for the worse for a couple of decades after he left.

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.
thank you I was a product of the 60's and we tackled every day,it sucked but we did it---because the game is blocking and tackling.

Honestly think the coaching was so good from schools like East Meadow Lawrence Hempstead Berner Freeport Massapequa. UMIONDALE never had that great coach alot of those close losses with all that talent would have been wins.

Even my Uncle agreed with you about how defense was taught and practiced. He said the worst beating can remember while playing at Patchogue was against a hard hitting Sayville team in '68 in which Patchogue lost 27-0. Great two way players like Larry Kane, Mike Mussler, Rick Van Brunt, Harold Jenkins, John Perry, Pete Costanzo, Bill Niebergall, and Ken Beer. He said just ask Gary Rooney and Patchogue's starting QB Jeff Juzwiak.

68 was a great year for HS football in Suffolk County. Smithtown High School. First year in League I. Did not score 100 points in 8 games. They scored 50 points in 2 games (First and last) and only 48 in the other 6 games. Their defense was so stout that they went 8-0 anyway. They won games (7-6, 2-0, 3-0, 9-7).
Big Tool has a point. The blocking and tackling have gotten progressively worse as live play in practice is all but forbidden now. If you want to look at a reason for the increase in concussions, take a peak at how kids no longer practice how to play the physical part of the game (blocking and tackling). The majority of injuries are the result of bad technique.

Tool talk about Uniondale tough losses, 1968 basketball team loaded with talent Russ Bastin coach. How about Conroy, Copeland,Tarvin, Black, they lose playoff game in 4ot's in the semi's 49-47 to eventual county champion. Uniondale has more tough losses than anybody in most sports except Track where they are Kings.

Tony carcaterra was at uniondale for a short period as a gym teacher and coach but not until 70's or 80's he was a standout athlete at Lawrence in baseball football basketball but not a janitor owned a painting business I believe.
