Assemblyman Raia Recognizes Local Football Coach

March 20, 2006

Assemblyman Andrew Raia (R,C,I,WF- East Northport) congratulates Anthony Cerullo on his induction into the Suffolk Sports Hall of Fame. Mr. Cerullo achieved great success in his 12 years as the head football coach at Elwood-John H. Glenn High School. He led them to seven league championships and five conference championships, in the process becoming the first in Suffolk County to win three consecutive conference titles. In addition, he was the athletic director for 27 years until his retirement in 1998.

Mr. Cerullo continues to be an asset to the community, as he is a lector at St. Anthony of Padua Church, participates in programs to help the needy and poor, and established the John H. Glenn Alumni Association, which contributes heavily to the athletic programs at the school. Assemblyman Raia commends Mr. Cerullo for his commitment to Suffolk County and his dedication to improving our schools.
