First Alumni Game Benefit Current Athletes
On May 14, 2016, Red Bank Regional (RBR) held
its first football Alumni Game, on the Count Basie field against Long Branch; thus,
reuniting the oldest rivals in the Shore Conference. Over 2,000 people attended the match, making
it the most well attended alumni game in recent history. The game did not go
well for the BUCs, who lost 24 to 0.
However, the current and future RBR athletes were the true winners of
the game as $5,000 of the proceeds were donated to RBR for its new fitness
room. Jim Palumbo acknowledges that a second donation of $2,000 will also be
made to the Athletic Youth Football organization from the games proceeds.
Athletic Director Del Dal Pra comments, “We are very grateful to all the alumni
that played and the fans that came out to support them. The proceeds will be used to install a 42 by
12 foot performance turf for athletic agility, strength and conditioning
training in our new fitness room. This
should benefit our athletes for years to come.”
gift, a picture montage of the players who participated in the game was created
by alumnus Chris Melvin. It features
pictures of the players at the game along with their historic pictures from
their high school playing days.
Del Dal Pra
states, “That will hold a special place of honor in our fitness center.”
