Exceptional Football Players from Long Island Begin Winter Season

Long Island Spartans Football Announces Winter 2015-16 Draftees
By: Long Island Spartans
Dec. 16, 2015 - PRLog -- Being part of LI Spartans Football is an honor. It's a rare opportunity for the best players on Long Island to play together and represent the region. These special teams develop and play together year after year at an elevated level of competition, and form bonds that transcend recreational leagues. Spartans players have received more awards in their local leagues than their peers, have gone on to play in the FBU National Championship, IV Star Showcase Games, and had stellar high school performances. The Spartans program offers kids who are serious about football an opportunity to train and play with the best. It's a program where the backbone is made up of former NFL and NCAA players combined with the best trainers and youth coaches in the region. 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 on Long Island. Gerald Filardi, the founder and director of the Spartans, was a Penn State linebacker and Pittsburgh Steeler.

“Long Island is rich in opportunities for select lacrosse teams and soccer academies, but there hasn’t been anything beyond that for football players. You're kidding yourself if you think kids in the south and west, and even in New Jersey aren't playing football, training, and doing combines after the fall season ends. I want the kids in Long Island who love football to have the same opportunities”, said Filardi.

The Spartans went undefeated again this year in the Pioneer League, taking the championship. The Pioneer League includes teams from Manhattan, Bronx, and New York Metro region as well as some travel to Maryland & New Jersey. They won “Program of the Year” in 2013, and this year Filardi was voted "Coach of the Year".

“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.
