The Nassau Knights, Nassau County Police Activity League’s (PAL) flag football special needs team, played and won against a group of Kappa Sigma fraternity members from Adelphi University.
According to Newsday, the team of 14-28 year olds with varying disabilities, played its only game against another team this season. One of the team’s coaches, Harvey Pollack, stated they usually divide into two teams and play each other, as there are no other special needs teams to play against.
The Nassau County Police Activity League is the only PAL in the country to have a Special Needs Unit.
Way to go! Congrats to both the Nassau Knights, and the Kappa Sigma Fraternity.
