New Hyde Park Resident to Join Soccer Hall of Fame

Willie Dempsey will be 15th member from Long Island in Eastern New York State Soccer Association Hall of Fame.

The Eastern New York State Soccer Association (ENYSSA) will induct a New Hyde Park resident as its 15th member from Long Island into its Hall of Fame (HOF) this year.

Willie Dempsey was nominated by the Long Island Soccer Football League (LISFL) a couple of months after he was named “Life Member” at the LISFL’s annual awards dinner in June. Dempsey will be the first Long Island inductee to the HOF since Malusa Marco in 2010.

Dempsey has been part of the LISFL’s perennial power house amateur club New York Irish Rovers for over 30 years, starting as a player, then later on becoming an administrator and is currently club president.

His achievements both as player and coach rank as one of the best in amateur soccer on Long Island, including 10 New York State Championships (4 Division 1 Manning Cups), 20 Long Island League Championships, 24 Long Island Cup Championships and 6 Sportsmanship Awards.

The New York Irish Rovers is currently the second most decorated club in the 64 year history of the LISFL.

“Willie Dempsey is one of the fiercest competitors you will ever meet on the pitch, even today,” said LIISFL president Gus Xikis and hall of fame member said in a statement, “but his quality reaches beyond just playing soccer. Willie is a devoted volunteer and has passed on his many years of experience to a countless number of young student-athletes, helping them to develop into great soccer players.”

Dempsey is also an elected member of the LISFL board, currently the League’s third vice-President and the commissioner for all divisions of the LISFL. 

“I am truly honored to accept this nomination,” Dempsey said in a statement. “It is humbling to look at the other members of the hall of fame and consider myself among them.”

“Republicans can do it,” said http://www.coachoutletmls.com Jennifer Duffy, a Senate political analyst at the nonpartisan Cook Political Report. “It’s just getting a http://www.hermesbeltsoutletns.net lot harder.” Rob Jesmer, the executive director of the National http://www.coachfactoryoutletion.com Republican Senatorial Committee, said Thursday that Republican candidates were within http://www.coachfactoryonlinemb.com reach of victory in 10 to 12 competitive races, with Mr. Romney’s improvement in the polls http://www.coachoutletonlineef.org lifting candidates in states that were out of play six weeks ago.But time is dwindling. The implications for the next http://www.coachoutletonlineeu.net two years cannot be overstated. If Mr. Obama wins a second term, his hand would be much strengthened http://www.coachfactorystorebg.org by a Democratic-led Senate, even a narrowly divided one, as opposed to unified Republican http://www.coachoutletonlinetpc.net majorities in the House and the Senate.At the moment, Democrats are given little chance of winning the http://www.coachoutlethcs.com net 25 seats they would need to take the House, though they could well gain House seats.If Mr. Romney wins the White House, even a one-seat Democratic http://www.coachoutletb1.com

The state railway, Deutsche Bahn, operates http://www.outletcoachstoday.com what it calls - using the English that http://www.coachoutletod.com infuriates language purists - a Call a Bike scheme. http://www.coachs-outletcar.com There is a bank of red bikes outside the station. On the bike, http://www.coachoutletdp.com there's a telephone number which you call, and http://www.coachoutletwo.com the voice at the other end gives you a code to http://www.coachfactoryoutletsp.com unlock the bike.When you've finished, you lock it http://www.coachfactoryoutletli.net to something fixed and call the number with a code and somebody picks it up. http://www.coachfactoryoutletce.org You will be charged eight cents a minute.But most of us have our own bikes. We http://www.coachoutletonlinelc.net do not wear helmets. It is foolish, but we don't. I always mean to - but I http://www.coachoutletonlinesc.com don't. I realise that the brain is man's second favourite organ - but I still http://www.coachoutletonlinelsa.com leave my helmet behind.There is an argument now that if cities insist on http://www.louisvuittonoutletct.com helmets for bike-hire schemes, then people simply don't ride bikes. And if http://www.louisvuittonoutletti.org people don't ride bikes, then they're less fit and that means that more of them http://www.coachoutletrf.com die of heart-attacks.On this argument, insisting on helmets raises the overall death.
