Falco completes championship trifecta

 
Dave Falco has been a champion as a player and coach.

Dave Falco has been a champion as a player and coach.

Dave Falco has done something no one has ever accomplished in Sachem history in any sport. He is the first person to play on a championship team, and win a championship both as an assistant coach and head coach.

Falco was a senior on Sachem’s famed 1983 squad that is still the only undefeated club in program history, was later an assistant coach on Sachem’s 1995 team, and is, of course, the head coach now for the latest championship.

After the game he shared a moment with legendary Sachem coach Fred Fusaro, who was in attendance to support the program, just as he has been at every championship since he retired as Sachem’s longest tenured head coach in 2002.

This is Falco’s first championship in four tries during his 11-year career as a head coach.

Sachem assistant coach Dave Caputo completes two of the winning categories since he was a senior captain on that 1995 team.
