Mayor Domenic J. Sarno invited and congratulated players and coaching staff of the Springfield Central High School varsity football team at City Hall. Superintendent of Schools, Daniel Warwick, and Central High School staff was also in attendance. The Central Golden Eagles recently won their second consecutive MIAA Division III State Championship “Super Bowl” at Gillette Stadium.
Mayor Domenic J. Sarno said, “I’m so proud of these young men and their families for bringing home for the second year in a row a major state championship to Springfield. Under the dedicated and caring guidance of Coach Valdamar Brower, Principal Tad Tokarz, staff and teachers, these young men continue to excel, not only on the field, but more importantly in the classroom. It has been just so tremendous to witness their teamwork – something they’ll always remember and our city will speak about for years. Also, a special thanks to Mr. Peter Picknelly and Peter Pan Bus Lines for their efforts too.”
