The FA Huskies 1981-82 boys varsity basketball team was one of the best FA teams in school history.

Coached by the late Jon Rider, the ‘81-‘82 Huskies completed a perfect 23-0 season. This Huskies team was perfect in so many ways. They were awesome on offense, tenacious on defense, had a strong rebound squad and were a true team with every player a star. This Huskies team dominated every opponent they faced in their 23-game win streak.

The undefeated Huskies team included several star NAC players, obviously, but it was 12 players who put the team above themselves. The team members were Charlie Fleury, Frank Gardner, Ed Paquin, Rob Gravel, Mike Boyea, Craig LaPlante, Paul St. Mary, Mike Hogan, Pat Hogan, Mark Robinson, Mark Prairie, and Bob Andrews.

Student managers were Ed Kelly and Frankie Collins.
