This year’s ECS alumni football game matchup brings about some changes as the graduates from Ellicottville Central School face a new opponent – the Salamanca City School District. The teams will take the field at 6:30 p.m. June 9 at the ECS football field. Admission to the game is $5 per person, $3 per student and is free for ages 10 and under.
Timothy Grinols, a 1992 ECS graduate and event organizer, will coach and play for his alma mater’s squad. He advised spectators to bring their own seating as they are expecting a large crowd.
Seth Hostuttler, a 2000 Salamanca City School District graduate, put together the team that will square off against ECS. He said his team is very excited to be playing in the game.
Proceeds from programs, ticket and concession sales will be equally divided distributed to both schools for pee-wee, midget, junior varsity and varsity football equipment. In addition to being a fundraiser, Grinols said the event is also “another way to get us old guys back into the pads and hit.”
