The Cardinal Ritter Football Team had their first football game on Friday but one could argue the greatest experience they will have all year was the one that happened the night before. The Raiders held their first annual Father/Son Jersey Presentation. The junior and senior players’ fathers came to school and were able to present their sons with the jersey they will be sporting the entire year. Each father had words of encouragement for their sons as they take on the journey that is the 2018 football season.
Some of the comments coming from players, coaches and fathers were: “Awesome!” “Greatest experience I have been a part of at Cardinal Ritter.” “Better than winning a State Championship!”
This is a tradition that looks to grow in the coming years just as the bonds between fathers and sons grew on Thursday night.
These are the experiences that make Cardinal Ritter a special place and shows what kind of “family” the Raider Nation is all about!
