Senior, Wide Receiver
Highlights: The 6-foot-3 receiver presents a big-time targert for Chiefs quarterback Kenny Galvin and he’s anxious to jam-pack his stat line this season after surprising plenty of teams last fall.
Scouting Report: Oceanside has its sights set on a Nassau Conference I championship this season and the road to a title gets underway on Saturday afternoon. The No. 1 preseason seed returns a core of experienced players, sparked by quarterback Tommy Heuer, but the key to success is in the trenches.
The Sailors line – which includes returning standouts Mike Schibelli, Chris Pullini and Vincent Schell – is one of the biggest and most experienced groups on all of Long Island. Oceanside is ranked No. 6 on Long Island by News 12 Varsity.
Massapequa boasts one of the best offensive tandems on the gridiron this fall with the return of quarterback Kenny Galvin, who threw for 1,125 yards and 16 touchdowns while rushing for 425 yards and six more TD’s last year, and receiver Owen Glascoe. If those two can find a rhythm early on this fall, the Chiefs are going to be tough to slow down.
Also keep an eye out on the rushing duo of Garret Gibbons and Grifin Hawthorne who offer a ground option for Massapequa as well. The Cheifs, who defeated Oceanside in the quarterfinals a year ago, are ranked No. 7 on Long Island by News 12 Varsity.
