High School Football

Newsday goes deep with Long Island high school football.

Empire Challenge: LI roster released

MSG Varsity’s first annual selection show for the Outback Empire Challenge football game was well done. Mike Quick and Boomer Esiason gave you their usual enthusiastic analysis, and I enjoyed that peek inside the selection process with the coaches’ roundtable. Keen observers could see Gregg Sarra, my old Newsday comrade and now the Long Island sports coordinator for MSG Varsity, getting his say on the Long Island roster.

The 2010 L.I. team is an impressive group, led by Newsday’s co-Hansen Award winners JeVahn Cruz of Half Hollow Hills West and Malcolm Cater of Riverhead and Thorp Award winner Anthony Brunetti of Holy Trinity.

Here is the Long Island roster, listed by the positions for which they were selected. The 15th annual game, matching L.I. against New York City, will be played on June 22 at Hofstra.
