College Bound Athlete

Congratulations to senior Mike Anniccherico who will be joining the St. Thomas Aquinas College Sprint Football team for their 2019 season.

Mike played offensive and defensive line for two seasons on the Sleepy Hollow Boys’ Varsity Football team in 2017-2018.  “Mike has a fantastic work ethic and drive to be successful,” said coach Jorge Veintimilla.  “While on the team, he demonstrated great qualities of leadership by pushing teammates to compete at their highest level.”  Mike earned All-League as a senior. 

He signed his commitment papers on May 13 surrounded by his coaches, family and friends.

In freshman year Mike earned the nickname of side salad due to his small stature for the position he played – and it stuck. Coach Veintimilla said the name suits him. “Like a side salad, he was always the first one in, he was never the wrong choice and he was always there when you needed him.”

Mike is a two-sport athlete having played Boys’ Lacrosse at SHHS.

“I am excited. I like the intensity of the game and the brotherhood with the players and coaches.
