Thanks to the records left by former Middie Coach, John Nania, the Middletown Coaching Staff has been able to share a lot of our program's history through this website. Clicking on any of the links to the left will show you some of our history and in the Photo section we have gathered pictures from nearly every Middie Team since 1895.
Enjoy learning about our history and watching us make more history in 2007!
Thanks for the support!

"It was the first game of the season against goshen in the start of the 2004 season when the year before i was a 10th grader we went 0-9 and the first game of the 2004 season we went to goshen and was down 14-0 at half time and we came back and won 21-14 to snap like a 0 and 12 record from the year before and i had a interception in the red zone to shut goshen down when they drove down the field. The moment was so good to get that winning feeling. And everyone went crazy.
Now i plan to have many more moments playing for morrisville state college." - Bobby Mangano
"Billy Gray Sr. played the undefeated season of 61 and he played in 62. Billy held the school record for the most interceptions for 20 years. He held that title until 81, 82 although I'm sure it was 82 that his record was broke, by no other than his own son, Billy Gray Jr." - Liz Freeman-Rivers
"There were two memorable games from the 1969 season that I remember more than others. The first was our game with Newburgh that ended 52-42. The score went back and forth and after we lost the game I looked at Coach Wolslayer and said " we left it all on the field." We had beaten White Plains the previous week and had a lot of injuries."
"The second was our last game on Thanksgiving Day against Port. The game ended with the scored tied, but Port was awarded and extra play on a personal foul penalty after the game ended. The scored on that next play and even though the State of New York ruled that the play should not have occurred, they would not change the score. I think to this day we say our recored that season was 6-1-1 while Port players would say we were 6-2." - Gary Klingman
