REST IN PEACE DAN ALVINO


With a broken heart, the league must announce the passing of Dan Alvino today. Dan was the 2nd Head of Officials for the LIFFL, serving in that capacity from 1992-2012. He was a Men’s League Head Referee from 1990-2019 for the Suffolk Division. Beloved by players and referees alike, Dan took over the LIFFL referees in its early days and turned it into the best Officials Organization in the Flag Football world. He served also as a crew chief “white hat” for Section 11(Suffolk High Schools) for 40 years. He is survived by his wife Claire, children Steven, Joseph, and Tracy, as well as numerous grandchildren. Commissioner George Higgins said “Dan was a Long Island Football Icon. Football on Long Island will never be the same without him.”

Last year’s program was a huge success with over 2000 participants learning & enjoying Flag Football in a safe, NO CONTACT format. As we have in the past, all “friends” will be placed on the same team to assist parents coordinating rides. All games last one(1) hour and are played on Sunday afternoons sometime between 11AM-5PM beginning March 10th, at fields closest to where you live. Your child will be placed on a team from the same school. You may also register a full team of neighbors/classmates. NYS certified H.S. football officials are used and alternate play-dates are available for any Sunday game that conflict with religious holidays. There is ZERO blocking in flag football so it doesn’t require week-night practices that infringe upon a student’s homework/study time. There are six regular season games followed by play-offs and a Super Bowl. The season kicks-off Sunday March 10th. This program is not affiliated with any school districts. Schedules are mailed February 24th.

The price per child is only $140 ($145 if using PayPal) (3rd sibling free) and includes an NFL jersey, flag belt, & invitation to a free “Skills Camp” prior to the season.

2018 LIFFL HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES


 

 

Left to Right

 

Jimmy Barbarise– Started playing in the LIFFL in 1989 when I played my first game. Starting as “Winner Sports bar” they won the title in their very 1 season.! I was my teams captain, coach, WR and FS. He played and won championships on other teams such as Mike’s Place and others. He eventually wound up on Darkside and won a couple more. His last was in 2001. Jimmy was featured in Newsday being interviewed by Calvin Watkins on the LIFFL championship Game at Giant Stadium.Jimmy played during the Golden Era against some of the best teams in the country every single week (Park Bench, Grazio Carting etc)

Mike Lupa-Over the last 12 years Mike played 8 man A, B, and C for the Phantoms and the Strong Island 49ers. 5-Man B & A for Cash Butter Nuggets, Bogarts, and the 49ers. Mike was the team captain for the Phantoms where he led his team to (3) 8 man championships where he was named MVP in all three Super Bowls. In winning those three championships in B he was voted as offensive player of the year due to his quarterback play. He also won a 8 man A full rush championship with the Strong Island 49ers. He has also won (8) 8 man tournaments. Lastly he has won (2) 9 man A championships with the Strong Island Bulldogs. Mike has played qb, running back, wide receiver, and defensive back in his 5/8/9man career. In addition to the Fall and Spring leagues he has won a night league 8 man championship as well. All together between 8-Man & 5-Man, Mike has won 30 Championships & 6 MVP’s

Dave Kleet– coach/RB/LB for the past 20 years. He has won tournament championships, but being one of the toughest and physical players in the league for almost 2 decades, and running a Kleet Lumber who was a team that was always at the top of the standings in the high divisions, Dave never won a LIFFL Season Championship. A few years back Dave told the Coach of the Purple People Eaters how much he hated one of the players on Purples team.. Which of course led to them merging teams. After taking another crack at 9-man a couple seasons ago, Dave joined back with Purple People Eaters last Spring. He got hurt that season and did not play, and Purple People Eaters won the Championship.

Justin Crisci- OL/DL- Justin started in the LIFFL in 2004 with the Clippers. The Clippers had a long run off success in the league winning multiple championships, and dominating the 9-man division. That is because of their line. Justin is a versatile linemen that can play Center or anywhere else on O & D-Line and will dominate anyone in front of him. Justin also represents the LIFFL on the national circuit playing with teams like Main Event. Along with all of his championships, most Recently the Fall 2017 9-man championship with the Main Event Clippers, Justin was honored by the USFTL at the Nationals as being selected as an All-American on the Offense. Justin is not only a dominant player, with multiple awards, he is also a class act on the field.
