Last season the Half Hollow Hills High School West Colts went 3-5 and hope to bounce back with a returning powerful senior class this fall. In Dix Hills on Saturday at 2 pm, the Colts will take on East Islip in hopes of a big upset on their home turf. Returning sophomore starting QB Joseph Filardi is hoping to make headlines this weekend using skill players like Jayln Jacques, Ryan Bonocore, Luca Pipia, and Zachary Vasconcellos to help push their strong and quick offense to a victory. The line is led by Thomas Nazaruk and Giovanni Reyes who will be key in winning the line of scrimmage. Joseph Filardi is as smart of a QB as they come, from his awareness in the pocket to the strong arm, he is truly a special talent. Running Back Jayln Jacques is quick and shifty and will be the backbone of the Hills West run game this season. Ryan Bonocore is a strong TE and will use his size to find openings in the field. The Hills West Colts have been working hard this offseason and are using their senior class to an advantage. The district consists of youth kids from Dix Hills, Wheatley Heights, Wyandanch, and neighboring Commack areas. They will also be versing Rocky Point, Westhampton, Sayville, Easthampton, Amityville, Islip, and Wyandanch this season. During the game, there will be, food trucks and ice cream for kids and families to enjoy. This will be a great event for the families and friends of the Dix Hills community.
