Dobbs Ferry Football Players Fill All-State Teams

DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. – The New York State sportswriters Association recognized the team success of the state champion Dobbs Ferry Eagles once again Wednesday by naming three Eagles players to its Class C All-State football first team.

John Yozzo-Scaperrotta, Darien Bica and Eddie Ritch, all seniors, were leaders of the team that ran to a nearly-perfect 11-1 season and won the Section 1, State Regional and New York State Class C titles, avenging their only loss by beating defending champion Bronxville in the Section 1 title game.

Scaperrotta was a standout running back and linebacker while Bica, a repeat All-State selection, was a star linebacker. Ritch was the Eagles’ lead running back and game-breaker through the playoffs, leading the way in the Section 1 and regional title game victories.

Along with the three first teamers, fullback Tim Soave and quarterback Spencer Avalos were named the second team.
