We will be playing an Alumni game on September 21 at Eastern Guilford High School to help raise money for Eastern and Northeast booster clubs. We have been having practice for the last two weeks for this game at Northeast Park….
We have been talking to Tommy Grayson about being the coach for Eastern and I’m not sure who Northeast has for their coach.
This is the first of several games that they are scheduling in this area. I know Page and Grimsley have a game coming up in October.
The Alumni game is going to be full contact and full pads just like a real game, just with a lot of older former players. We already have guys all the way back to the 1983 Class of Eastern signed up and out practicing.
It is good to see how things have changed over the years when you have guys from 1983 playing with guys from 2012 Class, but you have the one thing in common of graduating from the same school.
For parents of Northeast and Eastern players, they can talk and express their opinions, but now they have to back it up on the field and show their kids how they used to do it.
This game is for fun and to raise money for both schools, but it also carries a lot of pride for what used to be a big rivalry back in the day, so these guys are serious about winning.
I’m a parent of two kids that have graduated from Eastern Guilford one is serving our great country in South Korea and my daughter is going to GTCC and will be helping get the Alumni cheerleaders together, yes there will be Alumni cheerleaders cheering their Alma Mater on also.
The more people we can get out to the game the more money for each school.
You can contact Mr. Harvell at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, and he hopes to be hearing from you soon.
