Eight Garden City Football Players Named All-State

Garden City High School has achieved a remarkable milestone with eight of its exceptional football players receiving All-New York State selections. This recognition stands as a testament to the outstanding skill, dedication, and teamwork exhibited by these athletes, underscoring the excellence of the GC Football program.

The list of accomplished players includes:
• Michael Berkery – Running Back – 1st Team Offense
• Jack O’Neill – Defensive Line – 1st Defensive Team
• Matt Liberopoulos – Defensive Back – 1st Team Defense
• Aidan Considine – Linebacker – 2nd Team Defense
• Blake Cascadden – Defensive Line – 3rd Team Defense
• Christopher Desiderio – Place Kicker – 3rd Team Offense
• Owen Holtzman – Offensive Line – 3rd Team Offense
• Matt Kephart – Linebacker – 3rd Team Defense

These players played a pivotal role in Garden City’s undefeated season, culminating in a Long Island Championship. Impressively, Garden City has secured seven of the past nine Long Island Class II championships, including a remarkable three consecutive titles. The Trojans’ remarkable achievement includes a 42-game winning streak dating back to March 13, 2021, tying the longest winning streak in Long Island football history, previously held by Garden City from 2016-19. A victory in the 2024 season opener would establish Garden City with the longest winning streak in Long Island football history, a record dating back to 1888.

Under the leadership of Coach Dave Ettinger, the Trojans boast an impressive 97-3 record over nine years. The recognition of eight All-New York State selections marks a historic achievement, setting a new standard for Long Island football teams in a single year. Garden City High School continues to showcase not only individual excellence but also a collective commitment to a legacy of success on the football field. Congratulations to the players, coaches, and the entire Garden City community on this extraordinary accomplishment.
