The golden anniversary gridiron celebration continues Friday night!

Honesdale High School football continues its 50th anniversary celebration with a special ceremony Friday night at the complex.

According to Head Coach Mike Jurkowski, all former players are invited to attend the Week 10 Lackawanna Football Conference contest versus West Scranton.

Alumni players are welcome to join this year's team as they run onto the field before the start of the game. Opening kick-off is slated for 7 p.m.

Additionally, all members of the original Hornet squad (1968-69) are invited onto the field to be recognized at halftime.

There will also be two special presentations to men who have meant a great deal to the program since its inception.

“Since this is also Senior Night I think there's a really cool connection there,” said Coach Jurkowski.

“We have a lot to play for against West. We're fighting for a playoff spot. We want to give our seniors a memorable send-off and we want to honor the legacy that those very first seniors left behind.”

All are invited to Friday night's game. Come on out and pay tribute to the first Hornet squad … and root this year's team to victory and a berth in the District Two Class 4A tournament!
