Comsewogue Honors #99 Patrick Hueber

Comsewogue Honors #99 Patrick Hueber
Patrick Hueber tribute

The following is a quote from Mr. Matteo DeVincenzo, the Comsewogue School District Director of Health, Physical Education and Athletics:

"On Friday, October 8, 2021 Comsewogue played Amityville in football.  Prior to the game, we had a retired jersey (#99) tribute for Patrick Hueber who tragically passed away at the young age of 11. Patrick loved football and was a member of the Comsewogue Youth Football Team. The tribute was in conjunction with the Comsewogue Youth Football Organization, Jaclyn Shannon, Comsewogue Varsity Football and Comsewogue Athletics. 

I have been part of many special events/moments in my tenure at Comsewogue but this was at the top for sure.  This was one of my proudest moments as the Comsewogue Athletic Director.  The outpouring of support for this family was incredible. To top it off, the Amityville Football Team presented a signed football to the Hueber family prior to the start of the tribute.  It was one of the greatest (if not the greatest) acts of sportsmanship and kindness I have ever witnessed. 

Kudos to the Comsewogue Youth Football Organization, Varsity Coach Sean Tremblay and the entire Comsewogue Community for putting this tribute together for this family. Again, a special and proud moment for me that I will never forget."
