Turkey Bowl ’21 Draws Dozens Of Stars
Over 60 past and present Staples players — plus others who never wore the “S,” like academy athletes, relatives and friends of the program — worked up a Thanksgiving appetite this morning at Loeffler Field.
They played in the annual Turkey Bowl. The event was canceled last year due to COVID. This edition — with a bright sun, warm weather and plenty of energy — may have been the best ever.
The oldest player was Dave Wilson, the 1974 team co-captain, who went on to a stellar career at Dartmouth College. The youngest was freshman TT Bassler.
Several players, including Todd Champagne ’94 and Jack Scott ’16, came from California. Two recently completed their college careers : Josh Berman and Kyle Zajac.
The soccer was excellent. The vibe was even better.
