Athletic Department Retires Joshua Butzke's Jersey
On Saturday, September 1, 2019, The Comsewogue Athletic Department officially retired the soccer jersey of #11, Joshua Butzke. Joshua graduated from Comsewogue in 2010 and tragically lost his life this past January in a skydiving accident. Joshua was arguably the best soccer player to ever play the game at Comsewogue. He was a four-time all-league soccer player, three-time all-conference, two-time all-county, two-time first team all-state and a two-time all-region player. He lead his team to back to back state championships in 2008 and 2009. Joshua is survived by his parents Rich and Lorraine and siblings Eva and Samantha. Both Joshua and Samantha will be inducted into the Comsewogue Hall of Fame on October 6th.
