Farmingdale Lacrosse-A Family Affair

Posted Monday, April 09, 2007 by Mike Hungerford

Since the beginning of the lacrosse program at Farmingdale in 1966, there have been many families of players to wear the Daler green. Some that come to mind include the Chanenchuk's, the Ihm's, the Daniels', the Brennan's and the Panarelli's. But which Farmingdale family has made the greatest contribution to the success of the program? Upon a closer look, three stand out above the rest-the Engelke, Campbell, and Naslonski families.

The Campbell's: Four Campbell brothers played lacrosse at Farmningdale: John, Jim, Bob, and Ed. There was a Campbell on the varsity from 1981 to 1988, and John and Ed were county champions in 1983 and 1988, respectively. The four combined for 256 goals and 202 assists for 458 Campbell family points. And lets not forget good old dad Jack, who volunteered his time as a coach for both the football and lacrosse teams in the 1990's.

The Engelke's: Three Engelke brothers have played at Farmingdale since 2000, Jon, Mike and C-Jay who's a junior. All have played attack, and they have an uncanny knack for scoring goals. They have combined for 337 goals in 115 career games, and totaled 457 points. Oldest brother Jon scored 183 career goals, second all-time in school history. C-Jay has 87 goals already in his career, with 1+ years to go.

The Naslonski's: No doubt, the Naz family is the greatest Farmingdale lacrosse family. Five brothers...Rich, Bob, Bill, John, and Jimmy...2 high school all-Americans...two college all-Americans...3 were team captains. Now for the numbers: 426 total goals, 224 assists, 650 Naslonski family points. And let's not forget John, a goalie who had 817 career saves, most in school history. Congratulations, Naslonski's.
