One player’s transfer is another player’s opportunity.

When a rumor circulated that Ahkee Anderson would transfer from Greenport High School to Center Moriches for his senior year (something that has since evolved into a reality), Greenport/Southold/Mattituck football coach Jack Martilotta knew what that meant: He likely needed a new starting quarterback.

Martilotta didn’t waste any time. He alerted his No. 2 quarterback, Nick DeNicola, that he needed to be ready for training camp, which began Monday. READ

After witnessing a first half in which it became apparent that things weren’t going to be nearly as easy for his Greenport/Southold/Mattituck football team as they might be, coach Jack Martilotta turned to a sideline observer and shook his head. With each week, he said, he ages 10 years.

Victory was at hand.

Or so it seemed.

Wyandanch High School’s new football head coach, Josh Shields, really didn’t need a scouting report for his team’s season-opening game Saturday against Greenport/Southold/Mattituck. That’s because, well, Shields was the scouting report.

No joshing. READ

On Monday morning the Greenport/Southold/Mattituck football players put their noses to the grindstone and their shoulder pads to the blocking sled. One end of that sled was moving dramatically more than the other. That was the end on which the hulking figure of Jude Swann was working.

Winning and losing is the cycle of life in high school football. Last season was undeniably a down cycle for Greenport/Southold/Mattituck.
