Fremont Football League celebrates 50 years
Submitted By Mike Heightchew
The Fremont Football League celebrated its 50th year with an all day event and a large, enthusiastic crowd. Five decades of service to the community has focused on giving young athletes hope and direction toward a good and honest life and a starting point for those who want to pursue a career in sports. Many local high school coaches began their sports training in Fremont Football and a few have become professional players.
Festivities began with a parade of teams from all divisions around the field and a run under the goal post with team flags flying high. Cheer leaders from each team put on a show of support and rallied the crowd to acknowledge the hard work from coaches, staff, players and parents to prepare for the new season.
League play will start Saturday September 6 at Irvington Community Park (41885 Blacow Rd, Fremont); the first game starts at 9 a.m. as the Steelers face the 49ers. For more information, visit: http://fremontfootball.org/
