The “Brian Ciampi Scholarship” is exclusively granted to a Lynbrook High School student athlete. The criteria is as follows:

A student athlete who exemplifies the characteristics and traits that Brian Ciampi (Class of 1991) was made of:


LOYALTY – An amazing teammate that will do whatever it takes to support his team, teammates, classmates, school, friends and family both on and off the field.

INTEGRITY – Knows right from wrong and will utilize his position, influence and ability to change others around him to do the right thing.

STRENGTH – Physically and mentally has what it takes to overcome and stand victorious no matter what obstacle he needs to go around or through.

This candidate/recipient should demonstrate LEADERSHIP –Inherently and proactively taking control of all situations both on and off the field leading his teammates or friends in a positive direction.

Brian Ciampi was the captain of the Varsity Football and baseball team. He was a fierce competitor and always left everything he had on the field. In football Brian received All County honors as he played middle linebacker where he acted as the defensive Quarterback. Brian called all the plays and audibled in real time. Offensively Brian was the Full Back, where he led the way into the opposition’s territory head first to clear the way for his teammates. He did off the field in life as well.

In Baseball, Brian was an All-County catcher where he controlled the game and called the plays. He pitched occasionally as well. He still holds the single season record for the most RBI’s for a LHS player. After High School Brian attended Farmingdale where he was the starting catcher and played in the National JR College Championship.

As a human being, Brian had a personality that was bigger than life. He was magnetic and the center of attention, everybody always wanted to be around Brian. Brian was well known and liked by everyone.

Help us tonight to raise funds to provide a student athlete a scholarship in Brian Ciampi’s name.
