Newsday article on Babylon HS Football – Friday Night Lights

“We’re playing three night games there this year and we’re very excited about it,” coach Rick Punzone said of the permanent fixtures. His school had played the occasional Friday night game in the past using portable lights, but now can make that a regular portion of future schedules.

Babylon should again be in the spotlight in Suffolk Division IV this season. They will be led by returning All-County star Bryan Schweitzer, a running back/middle linebacker, and 270-pound fullback/defensive tackle Sean Melow (above in orange shorts, shedding a blocker during drills on Wednesday). Quarterback/defensive back Greg Griffo and wide receiver/defensive back Alex Grandal also are veterans.
