Riviccio to Play Soccer for NYIT


High school senior and soccer star Russell Riviccio signed a National Letter of Intent on June 3 to continue his athletic career next fall at the New York Institute of Technology in Old Westbury. He was accompanied by his proud parents and Athletic Director Dominick Fontana. He plans to major in either accounting or health and wellness.

Riviccio, a center back who has earned All-League and Suffolk All-Star honors, chose NYIT’s Division II program after the university’s coach, Carlos Delcid, approached him during a tournament and expressed his wish for Riviccio to play for the Bears.
