Dear Fellow St. Francis Prep Alumni:
The 2013 SFP football season, which kicked-off on Saturday against a non-league opponent (the first league game is this coming Saturday vs. Christ the King), marks three major milestones in St Francis Football history, which are all worthy of a grand celebration.
- First, the 2013 season is the "100th Anniversary” of the football program; a commitment to excellence that cannot be rivaled by any other Metropolitan High School in New York.
- Second, the season represents the 61st consecutive season as Head Coach for Mr. Vincent O’Connor,a man who has dedicated his life to the players and program here at the Prep.
- And finally, the new and innovative approach to fundraising at St. Francis Prep that has been approved by the school’s administration. The football program can now raise funds that will solely benefit the football program and its endeavors.
With that being said, several football alumni, coaches and friends of the program have come together as a committee to create The Friends of St. Francis Football Fund. Our Mission statement is: "To afford the opportunity for selected student-athletes to obtain a Catholic High School Education at St. Francis Prep. Through the generous support of loyal alumni and friends, The Friends of St. Francis Football Fund will help defray tuition costs and represent a real savings for young student athletes and their families. In addition, it will help support St. Francis Prep High School to continue its mission to be a leading Catholic High School in the Franciscan tradition and keep the St. Francis Prep Football program the greatest high school football program in the NY Metropolitan area.”
I hope you will share in our mission and celebrate with us on the floor of the NY Stock Exchange on Tuesday evening, October 15th. It will be a great reunion for all (see attached for details). For more information, please visit our website https://friendsofsfpfootballcentennial.eventbrite.com/ or friend us on Facebook at:The Friends of St. Francis Prep Football Fund.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for all of us to come together and show our support for the SFP Football Program as well as to pay homage to our coach who has had such a positive impact on our lives. Help ensure that our "Pride and Tradition” continues at the highest level in NY HS Football.
