While the season officially started a week ago on September 8th in New Jersey, the first New Rochelle Youth Tackle League home game was yesterday at the Joseph Fosina Football field at the old City Park (and now William ‘Brud’ Flowers Park).
My middle son, A.J., used to play football, and it was wonderful to pop in to see the old familiar football color, the excitement, the parents, and the volunteers hard at work. Mr. Joseph Fosina was also on hand, and he kindly spoke to me for the video. The teams were playing Eastchester yesterday morning, and the New Rochelle Youth Tackle League had won the first two games, but the 10-11 year old team (Pee Wees) were down 6-0 while I was there… BUT, it was only the second quarter, and I am hoping that changed after I left!
New Rochelle is GREAT!
