Old Friends come back to visit before Thanksgiving Day game
Posted Tuesday, December 20, 2005 by Mike ODonnell
Our Thanksgiving game brings old & new friends together every year at Parker Stadium. It also gives old Stepinac players a chance to stop by from their very busy schedules to come visit. This year was no differen't. Many stars of the past were on the practice field on Monday - Tuesday & Wed it was a who's who of the past couple of years in Stepinac football. You almost need a roster to keep up with all of them. Brendan Nugent stopped by to give boys some words of encouragement. We wish Brendan & Iowa the best of luck in the Capital One bowl next week. Tyler Nugent also stopped by just off his senior year at Holy Cross. Griffin Nugent one of Stepinac's Leathal Weapon of years past is coaching the Bernies football team. The Archer boys Chris & Dan were back from Albany State & FDU both doing great on the gridiron. Billy Flooks getting bigger than ever, is ready to take over TE job at Marist next season. The Kehayas's are always fixtures at Stepinac. The Bub's George & Luke are going into Soph year at Iona College football as Terrence just finished a great Career at Iona being named to Academic All American Team. Andrew Clarke also stopped by from his season at Delaware where he is playing DE. Many more stopped by the game to to talk about old times & their very important HS Football days. We would like to Thank all of them for not forgetting the Crusaders Football Program & we know they are always still making us proud of what they are accomplishing.
