The Freeport High School Red Devils varsity football team are the reigning Long Island Conference I Champions, after defeating the William Floyd Colonials in an intense, action packed game, 42-14, on Nov. 29 at Stony Brook University’s LaValle Stadium. 

Senior captain Makhai Jinks scored the first touchdown of the game from an 8-yard run and then added another touchdown to the scoreboard from a 1-yard run in the second quarter. Senior Chayse Gordon also contributed a point to the scoreboard in the first half by executing an extra point field goal kick.

Makhai continued to advance Freeport at the start of the second half, with a 5-yard run touchdown. The Red Devils tacked on an additional two points with a successful two-point conversion by senior Dakarai Stevenson. The second half saw two more touchdowns by Makhai and a touchdown by junior captain Jayvian Allen with an 11-yard run. Chayse continued to add to the scoreboard with three successful extra point field goal kicks. 

This is Freeport’s seventh Long Island Championship win, with five other victories against Floyd in 2018, 2016, 2010, 2009 and 2003. The Red Devils also won over Commack in overtime in 2000. 

The Red Devils continued their undefeated winning streak this season, with a total of 24 consecutive victories since 2018. They also claimed the Nassau County Conference 1 title, after defeating the Farmingdale Dalers 30-7.
