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. Darien has a long rich tradition in football and it is our pleasure to not only carry on that tradition, but share it with the seniors in town who started the great tradition.”
“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,” he said.
