The head coach, Tony Isabella, said a few words in regards to the upcoming game and season. “Francis Parker is a very good team, and they will be a tough opponent,” he said of the game on Friday.

He elaborated further on the rest of the season to say that fans of the Islander team should “look forward to every game because this is one of the toughest schedules in the county”. Despite the pressure, he was confident that this year would be an improvement from the last, thanks to an incredibly strong coaching staff with a mix of college experience, law enforcement and military presence, and a team of strong and intelligent athletes dedicated to the sport.
