|The question posed didn’t linger in the air long before Joe Vito pounced on. The Roosevelt football coach was asked what the Rough Riders’ season might have looked like if not for the performance of senior Kevon Hall. “Maybe we win two games — maybe not any,” Vito said. “He was the heart, the soul, the guts of our team. He was on the field for every play except kickoffs and we needed him there for all of it.”
Hall, Roosevelt’s featured running back and linebacker, capped a brilliant season by being named the 77th recipient of the Thorp Award at the Nassau County High School Football Coaches Association banquet on Wednesday night at Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury. Newsday presents the Thorp annually to Nassau’s most outstanding player.
