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.”

Seeded No. 1 in Nassau IV, the Vikings and their power offense will also return offensive playmakers Joe Angelastro, a senior halfback, and junior quarterback Logan Masters.

Angelastro rushed for 1,530 yards and 17 touchdowns, including a memorable display of 133 yards and three scores on 24 carries against Miller Place in the championship game.

Masters comes off a season in which he passed for 1,000 yards and totaled 12 touchdowns.

 No. 2 seeded Cold Spring Harbor finished10-1 last season, falling only to Seaford in the Nassau final.  Top returnees to the Power-I offense include senior wide receiver Thomas Milana and tight end Aidan Adomaites.
