Great Neck North hoping to reverse fortunes in 2015

Mike Florio

The good news for Great Neck North High School head coach Kevin Graham is that he can only go up as last year’s Blazers went 0-8. 

Graham looks to do this by improving the team’s speed on both sides of the ball. 

He said he also believes the experience the coaching staff received last year will help them going forward.

Three Keys to victory: 

1. Improved speed on both sides of the ball. 

2. More balanced running attack with increased speed and agility in skill group. 

3. More continuity in second year coaching staff. 

Key Losses: Mike Torres, RB/DB, Tyler Weiss, QB, Josh Bijari, OL/DL, Henry Kirshner, OL/LB, Rom Cohen RB/DL.

Key Returning Players: 

1. Aaron Lopez 11th WR/DB 5’9”/145

2. Jeremy Landsman 11th RB/DB 5’7”/147

3. Yves Trokel 12th RB/LB 5’8”/175

4. Sean Alishahian 12th OL/DL 6’1”/215

5. Ariel Hazan 12th OL/DL 5’11”/210
