Louie Jokinsky, senior tailback and free safety for Locust Valley, said the Falcons' goal entering this season is to be better at wrapping up and tackling the opposition.

"It’s really about breaking down and biting the ball," said Jokinsky, who rushed for 975 yards and five touchdowns, while making 27 tackles last season. "Get your head on the side of the ball and wrap up. We don’t have a lot of size this year. We may be small, but we like to hit. I think we will be just fine."

Jokinsky is a returning honorable mention All-County tailback from Conference IV.
