Several high school football teams raised money for a football coach from Sayville High School whose young son is battling a rare genetic disorder Friday night.
Coach Reade Sands' 9-year-old son Sammy has a rare genetic disorder called CDKL-5. The disorder causes severe neurological development problems and seizures.
The Sayville Golden Flashes took on six other schools in a scrimmage at Islip High School.
The event was spearheaded by Connetquot's head coach Mike Hansen. He says the scrimmage is a way to bring some good football teams together to do something good for someone else.
All proceeds from the event will go to the International Foundation for CDKL-5 research to help find treatments and eventually a cure.
