Fifty Years of Football

Football50

On September 24, 1966, the first football game was played at John D. Cook Field. Before the construction of the football field, games were played at Jay C Park. From that point until now, Cook field has been the Friday night home of the Paoli football team.

¨On September 23, 2016, the athletic department will celebrate 50 years of football at Cook Field the night of the Corydon Central Varsity football game,¨ said athletic director Darek Newkirk.

On that night, the 1966 football team will also be celebrated. The players on that team are the first and only outright champions of the Mid-Southern Conference in football.

September 23 will be a night full of nostalgia and remembrance of this special team and special field. Come out support the Rams, past and present.

Orange Bowl Tonight

PHS

Tonight the Varsity football team will take on the Springs Valley Blackhawks in the annual Orange Bowl game.

This event will display the work and determination that the Rams have put into play during a hard fought week of practice. This year, the game will be played on the Blackhawk’s field. The Rams will have the chance to go into enemy territory, and reclaim the trophy they lost in the previous season.

“Our players are juiced to play Valley this year. We have been preparing hard and hope to come out with a big win,” said offensive coordinator Neil Dittmer.

PHS students are strongly encouraged to attend tonight’s game, and they can reserve seats on the fan bus in the office. Supporters of the rams should come ready to yell and cheer on their team as they fight for the Orange Bowl title.
