Back by popular demand, we have Rye football game previews by the OG:
By The Old Garnet
Friday, September 11 Sleepy Hollow vs. Rye @ Nugent Stadium 7:00 PM
Folks have known for years that the SLEEPY HOLLOW HEADLESS HORSEMEN lust for the Garnets to be their rival, but Rye will have none it. The eerie squad from Ichabod Crane’s and Rip Van Winkle’s Hudson Valley ‘hood trot into Nugent for what has become a traditional horserace of former SWIAC foes. These tilts are always scary, never sleepy but Sleepy has snoozed, like Rip, for over twenty years while the Garnets galloped to a 26-12-1 (.684) nightmarish record.
Shhh – don’t wake the slumbering Zeemen. The sinister “Hollow Hit” chant coupled with the horseshoe helmets give the Red and White an aura and mystique beyond Washington Irving’s legendary stories. With their last stomping of Rye coming in 2012 and being the sole win in two decades, these stampeding spirits are charged to behead Rye.
Tonight the Rye Garnet Football Family honor former Assistant Coach and Physical Education Teacher George Maier who passed away in February from Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS). We remember Coach Maier fondly. HAUNT THE HEADLESS HORSEMEN ! HAUNT THE HEADLESS HORSEMEN !
