2016 Nanuet Golden Knights
Coach — Phil Carbone
How many years have you been coaching at your current school? I have been coaching at Nanuet for 29 years.
How did your team fare last season? Last year we were contending for a league title until the last league game of the year against Albertus. We lost in the Class A quarterfinals.
Who are the top players that you lost to graduation? Will Silverstone and Nick Comparetto.
Who are your key returning players? We will return Jordan Landsman, Andrew Samori, Benito Mendoza, Kevin Mackin and Terence Rogers to the lineup.
How do you feel about your pitching entering the season? We hope that pitchers like Chris Kelly, Steven Rossini and Steven Rizzuto will anchor a very young pitching staff.
Your lineup? We believe that key additions like infielders Liam Mitchell and Mike Castello, and outfielders Nick Giraurd and Dan O’Sullivan will mesh well with our returners and they should see quality playing time.
How would you assess your team’s chances this season? Our league remains one of the toughest around on any level with TZ, PR, Nyack and Albertus Magnus — all tough and loaded.
When is your opening game? We will open up April 2nd at Richmond County Stadium against Clarkstown North.
