Paul DeCabia

On Saturday morning, family and friends will say goodbye to longtime volunteer Riverhead football coach Paul DeCabia during a funeral mass at St. John the Evangelist R.C. Church in Riverhead.

Soon after, many of Coach DeCabia’s former players will pay their respects to the coach, who died Sunday, in a way only the Blue Waves football family could.

They’ll bring his cremated remains back to the football field and ring the victory bell in his honor.
