Mastic Beach, NY - Sept. 24, 2018 - The William Floyd basketball program saw tremendous success during this year’s Bellport Youth Summer League season with seven teams competing in grades three through 10, four of which reached the title games in their respective divisions and two teams the fifth- and sixth-grade team along with one of the seventh- and eighth-grade teams – taking home championships.
 
“Summer league is very important to our program,” said Darrell Sumpter, boys’ varsity assistant coach. “It’s great for team chemistry for our student-athletes to play together all year,” he added. “The chemistry we now have in our program is starting to show as our middle school teams went a combined 17-3 last year.”
 
Live game situations, as opposed to simulated games, provides the student-athletes the in-game experience necessary to help bring their skills to the next level. “The biggest area of improvement has come on the defensive side of the ball as we were able to hold teams to lower scores,” added Coach Sumpter.
 
Boys’ varsity head coach Rob Hodgson also plays a key role during the summer league. Hodgson directs each coaching staff and observes the student-athletes competing to learn about the up-and-coming talent as well as each student-athlete’s strengths and weaknesses before they get an opportunity to play at the varsity level.
 
Congratulations to Coach Sumpter, Coach Hodgson and all the student-athletes who were involved in the success of William Floyd’s 2018 summer basketball season.
