Christopher Douglass was recently elected to the Thomas D. Macrini Sports Hall of Fame in the Wappingers Central School District. Chris was the captain of Coach Seipp's first team at Jay in the Fall of 1998.  Chris led the team to a Sectional Championship, a Regional Championship and a State Final Four appearance, losing to eventual state champion Sachem 1 - 0. Chris then went on to win 2 National Championships at Herkimer and then played for 2 more years at Virginia Wesleyan College. "I can't think of a better person who represents what the Macrini Hall of Fame is all about" said Coach Seipp.  "Chris was a very talented player who worked incredibly hard both in practice and during matches.  He was a great player but his incredible character and dedication to John Jay Soccer set him above any player I've ever coached."  Coach Seipp said that Chris was one of the best captains to ever play for him and he is extremely happy to see him selected to the Hall of Fame.
