He’s one of the top offensive guys on Long Island.” Joe Martillotti, who played at Cortland State in 1995 and 1996, was named the offensive line coach.

Joe Supple, an assistant at Lawrence, and John Kostkwoicz, from Valley Stream High School will also work with the offense. “It’s a very cohesive staff, Vito said. These are the guys that Rob has worked closely with the last couple of years.” Sachem North head coach David Falco was named the defensive coordinator. He led Sachem to a 10-1 season in 2009. “I asked him to coach the Governor’s Bowl with us two years ago but he had prior commitments. I’m glad he’s with us this time around.” Vito Said.  Riverhead HS head coach Leif Shay was also named to the Down state’s defensive staff.
