Time flies. We are a mere 40 days away from making history when the 2011 Crusader Football team takes the field 'under the lights' vs the University of Massachusetts.
Many people remain busy with preparations for the day and the induction of the second class of Crusader Legends into the Holy Cross Ring of Honor. Details of the game day festivities will be released within the next few weeks.
To capture a sense of the awesome spirit embodied in the Ring of Honor program, I am happy to share a video clip captured and produced by the HCGLC of last year's Ring of Honor reception and ceremony. I firmly believe that anybody with an ounce of Purple blood will want to watch this video.
The remarks of the honorees (Bill Osmanski's '39 son Bob, Ed Murphy '43, Vince Promuto '60, John Provost '75, Gill Fenerty '86, Gordie Lockbaum '88) are filled with names, memories, and emotions which are truly PRICELESS. The video also captures the spectacular fall setting atop Mount Saint James.
Grab yourself a cup of coffee, your favorite cold beverage or perhaps a glass of fine wine and enjoy this 55-minute clip. It is truly special. Special thanks to Brendan Devlin '01 and Dan Adams '07 for the effort and technical prowess in embedding this video at the Fill Fitton Field website which was developed and launched by Brendan. GREAT JOB by these 'Saders!!
I hope you will watch the video in its entirety and then:
1. Share it with friends, family, teammates, classmates so they too can enjoy it and we can further spread the word and Build the Brand!!
2. Commit to joining us on September 1st when the second class (George Connor ex'46, Jon Morris '64, Joe Wilson '73, and Bruce Kozerksi '84) is inducted into the Holy Cross Ring of Honor.
3. Buy your tickets and join us on September 1st. Ticket information link. Discounted group rates available. Additionally for those staying overnight a select number of discounted hotel rooms are available. Please inquire with the ticket agent in the Holy Cross Ticket office at (508) 793-2573.
Enjoy the show along with the other material at the Fill Fitton Field site!!
