Sports enthusiasts from throughout the Town of Oyster Bay are invited to attend a Family Football Night at John J. Burns Town Park in Massapequa on Thursday, Aug. 23, at 7 p.m. Residents will feel like a part of the action during the evening’s planned activities, including a live interactive scrimmage with players from C.W. Post College.
“This event represents a unique experience for residents of the town because coaches of the C.W. Post Pioneers have agreed to wear a microphone during the practice, giving attendees the perspective of being inside the huddle,” said Oyster Bay Town Supervisor John Venditto. “Attendees will discover some of the complex strategy and nuances that go into an NCAA football program.”
Admission will be free for town residents, but all attendees are encouraged to bring two cans of food, which will be donated to Island Harvest to benefit the fight against hunger. The event will be preceded by a youth clinic featuring players and coaches from C.W. Post, as well as a player barbecue, which is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m.
