Friday, September 8 Somers vs. Rye @ Nugent Stadium 7:00 PM
It always seems Rye faces an early season match with the SOMERS TUSKERS, but this season it is versus the ’16 New York State Class A Football Champions. This year’s circus pits two legendary ringmasters ranking in the stratosphere of New York State Football Coaches.
Top Tusker Tony DeMateo ranks third in NYS history with 334 wins at Roosevelt and Somers, while the Garnets’ maestro, Garr, is in sixth place at 291 between Rye and Westlake. DeMateo is the winningest of all active New York State coaches while Garr follows in second place statewide. Rye leads this budding rivalry with the Silver and Red 8-5-0 (.615) as the Somers carnival comes to Nugent.
