Matthew “Dezy” DiStefano
Induction Year: 2020
Sachem volleyball coach turned motivational speaker and cancer fighting advocate, Matthew “Dezy” DiStefano suffered from kidney cancer and used every moment he has to preach positive values and help other cancer fighters through his new organization the “Dezy Strong Foundation”.
We lost Matt in 2020, but we carry on his legacy and the motto “WE GET TO” in everything we do.
Matt is also an inductee of the Sachem Athletic Hall of Fame and Mount St. Vincent’s Athletic Hall of Fame.
