We received news today that both Matt Baker and Steve Rola were named 1st Team All-State All Academic. Recently, Matt Baker was recognized as the top academic football player in Class A of all New York State by the New York State High School Football Coaches Association.
Today, we learned that his teammate Steve Rola was named to the NYSHSFCA 1st team as well. Steve and Matt were co-captians and provided their teammates with excellent leadership and great examples to follow.
Both of these players will have banners raised in the gym sometime in spring to recognize their accomplishments for many years to come. Both of these young men are great examples of what student-athletes are all about. We know that both of these young men will go on to do great things with their lives.
