Gary Stanis, who brought traveling Police Athletic League football to East Hampton in 2008, said this week that to give the high school program a boost, the East Hampton P.A.L. organization hopes to put 20 to 25 seventh and eighth graders through a 12-week strength, speed, agility, and nutrition program at Sag Harbor’s Studio 89 this summer.
The 9-year-old Police Athletic League football team here crowned a division-championship season with a 26-6 win over Three Villages on East Hampton High School’s turf field Sunday.
“This is the first championship season an East Hampton P.A.L. team has had since the 10-year-olds won two years ago,” said Bob Nicholson, who, along with Andy Baris, Chris Stewart, and Kieran Brew assisted Joe Hren III in coaching the 9-year-olds, who went 9-1 this fall in the Pioneer Division.
