Frank Luisi Contribution to Youth Football Honoree
Alfred Staab


Alfred graduated from Locust Valley High School in 1973 where he was a stand-out three sport athlete in football, basketball and track. For the past fifteen years, Alfred has been a pillar of the Bayville and Locust Valley communities. He founded the Oakneck Athletic Council, which is both a parent and fundraising organization. Under his direction, they started youth programs in football as well as wrestling and lacrosse. He has been a coach, board member and town representative for Oak Neck Football, which has been one of the pre-eminent youth football programs in Nassau County.

Alfred was responsible for the building of a lighted, turf football field, which the youth program currently uses for practices and games. Included in this construction were bleachers, a score board, a coaches’ box for filming, and a building which houses meeting rooms, a storage room for equipment, public restrooms, and a snack bar.

Alfred has helped to establish Falcon Pride, a non-profit organization to raise money for both the middle school and high school sports programs. Included in the projects was a new state-of-the-art sound system for the high school wrestling room and a new score board for the football field.  Alfred and his wife Nancy currently reside in Bayville and have two children, Christina and Alfred Jr.
