East Islip High School senior Derek Burrell signed a national letter of intent on March 28 to play football for Wagner College in Staten Island. He plans to major in education while playing for the Division I Seahawks.

During his impressive Redmen career, Burrell excelled at cornerback, wide receiver and finally quarterback, earning numerous accolades including New York State Co-Player of the Year, All-State 1st Team, All-Long Island First Team and All-County. He was named the 62nd recipient – and first ever from East Islip’s program – of Newsday’s prestigious Carl A. Hansen Award, presented to Suffolk’s top football player.
