VIKINGS VARSITY FOOTBALL
A Remarkable Run of Success for Past Two Years
We are Beyond Proud of the Vikings Varsity Football Team
After the Conference IV Long Island Championship game on November 25, 2022, North Shore High School Principal Eric Contreras said, “Day in and day out, our boys have brought us great joy along with two historic Nassau County Championships. We are beyond proud of them and the heart and spirit they bring to our entire Viking community. Today they hold their heads high, and we all give them and the coaches a standing ovation. Go Vikings!”
While the Vikings were defeated in a tough Long Island Championship game, they have had a remarkable run of success for the past two years. The Vikings have had a 19-game winning streak since last season and earlier this month became the Nassau County Champions for the second consecutive year. Last season, the Varsity Vikings football team was the Long Island County Champions! Their 11-0 record this year marks the second time a football team has been undefeated at North Shore since 1975 when the Vikings football team went 9-0.
It has been a sensational two-year run for North Shore, and senior Nicholas Livoti said, “He and his fellow seniors took great pride in what they’ve done. We were upset at how it ended but we made so much history at our school.” He continued, “With the community being so great in supporting us, we feel really good about how much we accomplished.” Coach Dan Agovino stated, “These kids have proven that our foundation is here to stay. We’re losing six all-county starters, but we have a lot of good young kids coming back. We’re very excited about the future.”
