Surprise! Rob Perpall is back.
The longtime coach who led Seaford to its third Long Island Class IV championship, had decided to retire after his team's 29-27 LIC victory over Miller Place. He changed his mind and is back for his 21st season.
“A few people, including the school superintendent, and a majority of the returning senior players asked me to come back,” he said. “And I’m thrilled to be back.”
