One of Joe Musso’s most memorable experiences from his high school days was breaking his collarbone in the 10th grade while playing football.

On Friday night, the memory bank for his football days got a whole lot better.

The senior quarterback was named Bayport-Blue Point High School homecoming king during a dance at the school, and was still smiling about the the next day while prepping for his team’s game against Hampton Bays.

"This is awesome. It feels really good to be appreciated," said Musso, 17.

Homecoming queen Alexandra Constantine,17, was crowned at halftime of the game. She stood in disbelief as fellow students handed her flowers.

“I am so overwhelmed and shocked right now,” said Constantine.

The action on the field followed a parade that started at the Bayport-Blue Point Library and ended at the high school. This year's school theme was children's books and each freshman, sophomore, junior and senior class represented their floats with books including ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ and ‘The Little Engine That Could.'

CJ Furchert, a Bayport-Blue Point High School graduate last year and homecoming king nominee, was excited to walk in the parade with his English bulldog, Gracie.

"We are here because we wanted to show school spirit,” said Furchert. “It feels good to be back."
