Coughlin, Carlock, Pierre, Jamison win high school football awards
Despite often being double-teamed, and sometimes triple-teamed, Patchogue-Medford receiver Connor Coughlin led Long Island with 1,079 receiving yards this season and earned the National Football Foundation Award as Suffolk's most outstanding wide receiver.
"Even if he wasn't open, he'd make the catch," said coach Gary Marangi. "He had a natural gift that you can't teach."
After helping to lead Sachem North to its first-ever Long Island championship, Malik Pierre was the recipient of the Joe Cipp Jr. Award for being the top running back in Suffolk County.
Huntington receiver Christian Jamison received the LaBue Award, presented by the Suffolk County Football Coaches Association, as the county's outstanding scholar-athlete. He had more than 450 receiving yards according to stats reported to Newsday.
