Alfio Carrabotta, Westchester Soccer Coach

After 34 years, Alfio Carrabotta is finally going to college. As a soccer coach, that is. The White Plains resident, and legendary Head Boys’ Soccer Coach at Eastchester High School will take his decades of experience in Section I, along with more than 300 career wins, to Westchester Community College as the new Head Soccer Coach. The announcement was made on Monday, March 26 by Director of Athletics, Mike Belfiore.

We are all very excited to welcome Al Carrabotta to Westchester Community College as our Head Soccer Coach. During 34 years as a Head Coach in Section I, Al distinguished himself as a man of incredible passion and integrity, and he enjoyed tremendous success at Eastchester High School. He is very well-known and respected throughout Westchester County, and I think he is the right man to build upon the strong soccer tradition that exists at Westchester Community College.” Belfiore said.

A physical education teacher in the Eastchester School District, Carrabotta not only coached the Boys’ program at Eastchester High School since 1983, but he was also the Head Girls’ Soccer Coach for the Eagles for 23 successful seasons, and coached several other sports during his career at Eastchester as well. During his final season at Eastchester in 2017, Carrabotta led the Eagles to an 11-2-3 regular season record, and a trip to the sectional playoffs.

He is a graduate of St. Francis College, where he was a member of the 1978 MAAC Championship team, and then proceeded to achieve a Master’s Degree in Physical Education from Southern Connecticut State University.

Westchester Community College is coming off a 2017 season during which they finished with an 8-5 overall record, capturing their third consecutive Mid-Hudson Conference Championship.
