The Connetquot High School football team recently joined the West Islip, Miller Place and Islip school districts to participate in a 4-Way football scrimmage and fundraiser event in support of Response Crisis Center, an organization which aims to spread suicide prevention awareness and assist those with adolescent mental health issues.

Throughout the course of the event, each school played the other three for a 30-minute period, alternating between offensive and defensive positions. Spectators were asked for a small donation at the entrance gate, and T-shirts were also available for purchase in support of the cause.

“The day was a huge success for everyone involved, and it served as a great example of how high school athletes from different schools can come together to support a very important cause,” said Connetquot High School football coach Michael Hansen. “This 4-Way Scrimmage allowed us to bring attention to serious problems facing many young people, and I’d like to thank all the players, coaches, parents and supporters who made this important event so successful.”
