GREEN HORNETS AWARDS CEREMONY
The Valley Stream Green Hornets youth football league hosted an awards ceremony on Dec. 9 at Blessed Sacrament Church to celebrate the various successes from the 2012 season. Two teams won the Superbowl of their respective leagues — the seniors (ages 13 and 14) under the direction of coach Bobby Hawkey Jr. and Pony Green (ages 11 and 12) under the leadership of head coach Bill Hughes. The Midget Team (ages 9 and 10) under the direction of coach John Beaubrun won the NFC Division 1 Championship title. Numerous awards were also presented for individual accomplishments and to the cheerleaders and coaches. Patrick Ferraiolo, a player on the senior team, became the first recipient of the Bob Hawkey Achievement Award, named for the man who founded the league 62 years ago. It is given to a player who has been a long-time member of the league, demonstrates leadership and sportsmanship, is a good athlete and student, and is “all that a Green Hornets player should be,” according to league President Sharon Daly.
