With Mother Nature delivering a glorious summer-like day, Superintendent of Schools Frederick Foresteire and the Everett School Committee celebrated another successful Homecoming extravaganza Saturday.
As Mr. Foresteire said prior to the event, there were many organizers and supporters who deserve praise including the School Department, the Mayor’s Office, the Department of Public Works, and the Everett Police and Fire Departments.
The recognition of the undefeated 1914 Everett High football team tied the past to the present as Everett’s glorious football tradition continues under the masterful leadership of head coach John DiBiaso.
The large crowd that attended the Homecoming game between St. John’s and Everett reaffirmed that while Friday night football is a popular attraction nationwide, there’s something special about high school games being played on a sunny Saturday afternoon in the fall.
Homecoming in Everett has become one of the highlights of the fall season and the addition of activities such as the breakfast, road race, and pre-parade entertainment has added another dimension to the fun and enjoyment of the entire spectacle.
Of course in the main event, the football game matching two of the finest programs in Massachusetts, our Crimson Tide prevailed by a 34-23 score, with one of the most exciting players in the state – senior captain and Boston College-bound Lukas Denis – leading the way.
We thank all the organizers for a successful and enjoyable Homecoming.
