Past NY CHSFL Athletes Gather in NYC
Congratulations Denny Golden ’59 and Tom Ehrhardt ’81
Each spring, for the past 7 years, a group of guys from former CHSFL teams (players and coaches) gather in NYC to share stories of playing football against one another and catch up with old friends. This gathering, held on April 26th this year, is known as the Big East Blast, as the first event was held during the Big East Basketball tournament.
Individuals are honored each year by the Blast Committee. This year’s honorees included two Football Legends from the Knights! Denny Golden ’59, Holy Cross’ first Captain and recently retired President of Fontbonne University, and Holy Cross Quarterback Tom Ehrhardt ’81 who went on to play as a free agent with the New York Jets and Cincinnati Bengals. Also honored at the 2017 Blast were Renzie Lamb, a Chaminade grad and former coach at Williams College and JP Foschi, a Chaminade grad who played tight end in the NFL.
A record number of former Holy Cross Alum (players and coaches) came out to celebrate this occasion. Below are a few photos of the day and a link to view more pictures of what was truly a very special event for our School and its great athletic tradition.
