Champion Knights Visit Boyd Third Graders


After the John Glenn Knights concluded their 12-0 season by capturing the Long Island Championship, third-grade students in Mrs. Zatulskis’ class at James H. Boyd Intermediate School wrote cards of congratulations to the team, coaches and staff.  Coach Shanahan and the team appreciated the letters so much that they wanted to visit the students personally to say thank you. In late January, Coach Shanahan, joined by members of the football team, visited the Boyd students. The third graders greeted the team with posters, letters, and pictures to welcome the championship team to their school. 
During the visit, the football players read a book to the class, talked about the importance of teamwork, and answered questions from the third graders. Both the Boyd students and Knights players enjoyed the visit. The team members present were: Bryan Shankman #54, Tommy Forsberg #1, Ryan Rielly #3, Nick Wagner #2, Rich Czeczotka #7, and Coach Shanahan.
