No. 4: Sean McCabe

Grade: 12th

School: Connetquot

Weight: 120

Record: 32-1

A three-time League II champion and defending county champion, McCabe has compiled a sterling record while competing in arguably the Island's deepest weight class. He is 2-1 this season against Hauppauge's Mark West (31-4), a state champion back in 2010. Since losing to West back on December 29th via 3-2 decision, he has won 23 straight, a stunning run of success considering his competition

He also has wins over Sachem East's Jakob Restrepo (28-1), Long Beach's Oral Allen (34-9) and Brentwood's Marc Gonzalez (34-6). If he wins a second Suffolk Championship this weekend, he will vault into the top-3.
