The following was written up by Howie Finnegan and used in a December issue of the Hicksville Illustrated News in 1995. Howie was a friend to the many athletes who played sport at Hicksville High. His reporting of their individual feats was always exciting and brought many memories into proper perspective.

The team shown below is the inaugural football team for Hicksville High from the Class of 1925. There are still many descendants. Family names have appeared again and again in athletic, civic, business, cultural and educational life over the 70-year period from 1925 to 1995. Members of the team were captain Walter Schlicting, Louis Millevolte, Thomas Morselli, Abraham Isrelowitz, Edward Donati, Stanley Bergold, Ralph Heberer and Joseph Baurer. The long passage of time has lost some first names. However, listed are last names and they include letter winners Heidtman, Guyer, Kearney , Heller and Graff. The team struggled in the opening season. Lone victory was recorded over Westbury 13-0. That ignited a bitter series between the two villages that for 31 years was acrimonious and colorful. Upon its termination in 1957, the volatile history was 15 wins for Hicksville 13 for Westbury and there were 3 ties. Losses were sustained at the hands of Manhasset 56-0, Great Neck 6-0, Friends Academy 6-0, Malverne 6-0 and Huntington 32-0. However, in the ensuing 1927-1928-1929 seasons, many players returned to help the black and orange rack up 16 wins, two defeats and two ties. The banner year was 1929 when the Comets record was 7-1.
