Members of the Suffolk County Golden Eleven Team

Comsewogue High School Senior Kaeden West was recently honored by the James C. Metzger Suffolk County Chapter of the National Football Foundation at its annual awards brunch. Kaeden was named to the organization’s prestigious Golden Eleven Team.

“Kaeden represented Comsewogue with pride at the awards brunch,” said Director of Athletics Matteo DeVincenzo. “Being selected for the Golden Eleven Team was a great way to cap off his incredible high school football career, and we are going to miss Kaeden when he graduates. We will always be proud to have called Kaeden a Comsewogue Warrior!”

The Golden Eleven Team comprises the top scholar-athletes in Suffolk County. Kaeden was one of only 11 members named out of 1,600 students in Suffolk County who played football this past fall.

Kaeden was a starting quarterback for the varsity football team in his junior year when he broke his leg in the middle of the season. However, he reained a mentor to his teammates and exuded spirit and optimism throughout his recovery.

Kaeden came back strong in his senior year and was named to the All-County football team. Additionally, Kaeden received the 2023 Suffolk County P.A.L. Sportsmanship Award, the Suffolk County Executive’s Youth Achievement Award and a proclamation from Suffolk County Legislator Nick Caracappa citing “Outstanding Teamwork and Exuberance in the Fourth Legislative District for 2023.”

This past November, he was also named the recipient of the 2023 Thomas Cutinella Leadership Award by the Suffolk County Football Coaches Association for his achievements on and off the football field.

Kaeden is also a member of the Comsewogue High School Student Leadership Team, multiple honor societies and the Athletes Helping Athletes program.
