William Floyd High School senior Frano Marino has received a $500 scholarship from the Suffolk County Coaches Association for achieving success in his high school academic and athletic career. A four-year varsity starter, Frano is a two-time All-League wrestler who maintained a 94+ grade point average throughout high school. He received the scholarship and an award recently at the Suffolk County Wrestling Coaches Association dinner.
“I am very proud of Frano,” said Tony Mecca, head coach, William Floyd varsity wrestling. “The demands of wrestling are like no other sport – conditioning, technique, strength training and diet, then add to that competition two to three times per week. The season runs through three major holidays and Frano did not miss a day, earning him ‘Iron Man’ honors. He went 78 days of practice without a miss and was able to do all this while maintaining a stellar grade point average.”
Frano will attend SUNY Oneonta in the fall.
