Alumni, coaches, players and friends came down to the Marine Park Seaside Links this past Friday July 17th for a great day of golf. The 7th annual event was put together to raise money for both the Adam J. Cirillo Scholarship Foundation and the BTHS Parent’s Football Club. The weather was perfect, even if the golf wasn’t, and the seven foursomes were able to get in 18 holes in just under five hours.
Coach McKenna’s foursome included outgoing President of the New York City Football Coaches Association and current New Utrecht Head Coach Alan Balkan, along with media pro Vinny Aceto and Tech Alum and CPA Terry Most.
Technite and former Stony Brook Head Football Coach Sam Kornhauser played in a foursome with former Tech linebacker Michael Tom. Recently retired Alum and former football coach Chris Columbo played in a foursome with Brian “Papa Mac” McKenna and 2011 Adam J. Cirillo Scholarship winner, Michael Plonski.
As the afternoon shifted into evening, Steve Fabrizio and his wonderful staff at Marine Park served dinner to the guests. Raffles including autographed balls, complements of Joe Namath and Boomer Esiason, were raffled off along with other items and memorabilia.
