The incoming group of talented players will start in the LIYIF league and will play and develop together for years to come. Many past Spartans have been selected for various all-star awards and gone on to play in the FBU National Championship of youth football. The Spartans program offers exceptional players an opportunity to play ball with the best, and participate in a program where the backbone is made up of former NFL and NCAA players. Players are scouted year round by position through an extensive network of coaches, referrals, and combines which seek out the biggest, fastest, and most talented players in the region. Gerald Filardi, the founder and director of the Spartans, was a Penn State linebacker and Pittsburgh Steeler. He is also the coach for the Long Island FBU National Championship Team. He started the LI Spartans program a few years ago to fill the need for a higher level youth football program in the area.

“Long Island is rich in opportunities for select lacrosse teams and soccer academies, but there hasn’t been anything beyond the PAL teams for football players. It’s an honor for anyone who makes the cut for our program”, said Filardi.

The Spartans went undefeated in the Pioneer League, and won the championship in the 12U division this past fall. The Pioneer League includes teams from Manhattan, Bronx, and New York Metro region. They also won “Program of the Year” for the 2013 season.

“The Spartans is not for everyone. It requires considerable commitment from those looking to become complete football players and take their talents to the next level. This is not a town team. The Spartans teams represent the best players in Long Island football”, said Filardi.
