Division I prospect that will clear the way for the Raiders offense. “I don’t like to boast about my guys but he’s worth talking about,” laughed Patchogue-Medford coach Gary Marangi. “He’s a big-time talent.”
JOHN ALIBERTI, MEPHAM

OT/DT, 6-6, 285, Sr.
He is the anchor of one of Long Island’s top offensive lines. “He drives people off the ball as good as anyone,” said Farmingdale coach Buddy Krumenacker. “It all starts with the guys up front. And he’s a real good one.”
