Wanted to say congratulations to Coach Mascia and the Holy Trinity Titans Football team. Going 10-0 for the first time, with a huge showdown against St. Anthony’s this Saturday at Mitchell Field House in Hempstead (across from Hofstra) at 7:00pm.
Anthony Brunetti has been crushing teams this year (and last) and is the best RB on LI and probably NY state. There is a decided bias in favor of the public schools, so he’ll probably wind up losing the Thorpe Award to someone like Kevin Allen. It is bullshit because the Catholic League is so much stronger top to bottom and each game is a challenge, whereas the public schools have a lot of cupcakes on their schedule.
This bias also shows in Newsdays large school’s poll – which has Trinity at 6 behind one-loss schools from the public league that would last a quarter on the same field as most catholic teams. Particularly Holy Trinity, St. Anthony’s, Iona Prep and Chaminade.
