RED BANK: HUNDREDS ENJOY OLDTIMERS GAME
A running back for Red Bank Regional looked for daylight against Long Branch High in the first-ever alumni matchup of the longtime grid rivals held at Count Basie Fields in Red Bank Saturday.
The full-contact game, complete with veteran cheerleaders, drew a crowd of about 2,000, according to organizer Jeff Mauro, of OT Football, and resulted in no serious injuries, he said. Long Branch won, 24-0. Some of the proceeds are to go to the two schools’ football programs. (Photos by Trish Russoniello and John T. Ward. Click to enlarge)
