According to Gina Blum, Executive Director of At Home In Darien, “Many Darien senior citizens have shared a connection with Darien High School sports through the years.  We are delighted to be able to spread the news about this opportunity to keep our vibrant senior generation connected to our youth.”

Football coach Rob Trifone, is enthusiastic about continuing this partnership with At Home In Darien. He said, “The Blue Wave football family is thrilled once again to continue to keep our senior citizens involved in the program.  Both Curly Curtis (former Darien football captain) and Frank Wilcox come to many practices and help the young men with their equipment when needed.  We would like to invite all of the seniors in Darien to come out and enjoy a great day of high school football.”
