Mastic Beach, NY - December 8, 2016 - The Suffolk County Coaches Association has selected William Floyd High School senior Michael Bradley as this year’s Bob Collatta Award winner, an honor given to Suffolk County’s top linebacker, for his play on the field this past season. Bradley helped anchor a stingy Colonials’ defense, which gave up an average of just 15 points per game en route to a 17th consecutive playoff appearance and a 10th Suffolk County Championship in program history. Coach Paul Longo described Bradley as “an excellent athlete, a leader on the field and a hard-hitting linebacker.”
