Sixteen Farmingdale High School Athletes Sign Letters of Intent

Sixteen student-athlete seniors at Farmingdale High School signed their letters of intent on December 3, 2018 to signify their commitment to college sports teams.


The seniors gathered in the lecture hall of Farmingdale High School, where they were joined by family members, coaches, Superintendent Paul Defendini, Assistant Superintendent Glen Zakian, Principal Dr. Samuel Thompson, Assistant Principal Jed Herman, and the Director of Athletics, Jeanne Berkoski.


Director Berkoski led the remarks, and turned the microphone over to the high school coaches, who gave a short biography of each athlete and announced the college they would be attending.


“We are extremely proud of all our young men and women who will be continuing their athletic journeys in various colleges,” said Ms. Berkoski. “These seniors are the first wave of student-athletes who have made early commitments to play a sport in college. There will be many more to come! But what is also very significant is their GPA’s, which are mostly above 95. Now that’s impressive!”
