As the sun set on August 7th the Friday Night LIghts came on at Bishop Dunne's Earl Hayes Football field. The first scrimmage of the year was preceded by a press conference introducing players who've already received college scholarships, carnival games for children and food and fun for fans.
Good Food and Fun was had by all at the "Welcome Back Celebration and Media Day."
Hundreds of Falcon fans braved the heat and came out to enjoy games, food and fun at the Welcome Back Celebration and Media Day held at Bishop Dunne on Friday, August 7, 2015, from 6:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Media were introduced to those scholar-athletes on the football team who are currently entertaining offers from colleges including defensive back, Josh Drayden, who committed to CAL/Berkley and defensive end, Jordan Robertson, who committed to Kansas State. Senior Quarterback Geraud Sanders will be choosing his college soon. The class of 2017 already has offers, including running back Rajan Cunningham, defensive back Chevin Calloway, Reggie Roberson and offensive and defensive line back Damion Daniels, whose brother, Darrion, a Bishop Dunne 2015 graduate, begins his college career this fall at Oklahoma State.
A cakewalk sponsored by the cheerleaders and a craft fair in the gym, sponsored by the basketball team, were enjoyed by all, along with carnival games and laser tag on the lawn near the football field.
Smokey John’s new Falcon burger was a hit with the hungry crowd, and snow cones were available for all.
Campus Minister Greg Schettini said the opening prayer before the scrimmage, and an exuberant audience watched as the football team ran plays.
The team’s next scrimmage is against Parish Episcopal on Friday evening, August 14, at 6:00 p.m. at Earl Hayes Stadium on the school campus.
