Conor Calderone was the best faceoff specialist on Long Island in 2019. He won 93 percent of the draws he took for Smithtown West and will take those skills to the University of Maryland.

His individual accolades were plenty during his senior year. Another All-American selection, as well as All-Long Island, All-County and All-Division for three straight years. But it was the Lt. Ray Enners Award, as Suffolk County's top player, that meant the most.

"Winning an award like the Ray Enners is truly an honor," he said. "Ray Enners was a very special person who was an outstanding leader and someone who gave his life for our country, to win an award in his name is an amazing honor.He is someone that everybody should try to be more like and look to as an example of how to be a great person."

Calderone's senior season did not end how he hoped, but he still credits the moment as his fondest. Smithtown lost to Ward Melville in the Suffolk County Class A championship.

"It was still an awesome experience getting an opportunity to win a championship with my best friends," he said.

Having won the Enners Award, Calderone's legacy is one of leader who gave his all for the team.

"The legacy I would like to leave is that I was an extremely hard worker that would do anything for his team," he said."I would like the players below me to know that everything you accomplish on the field has to be earned, and that being a great leader is sometimes just as important as being a great player."
