The 64th Annual DFRC Blue-Gold All-Star Football Game is moving to Friday Night Lights.
The traditional game which showcases Hand-in-Hand buddies featuring "Delaware's finest high school students who participate as football players, cheerleaders, band members, and school ambassadors," will be played Friday, June 21, 2019, at the University of Delaware Football Stadium. Opening ceremonies begin at 5:30 p.m., with kickoff at 6:30 p.m.
The Hand-in-Hand program pairs exceptional senior football players from across Delaware who also exhibit outstanding character with children and young adults between 14 and 18 years of ago who have intellectual disabilities.
More than 45 public, private, parochial, vo-tech, and charter schools now participate in the annual game, which was first played on August 25, 1956. The game puts diversity, acceptance, and ABILITIES front-and-center.
Dan Candeloro, Head Coach at Caesar Rodney High School, will lead the Gold Squad, while Matt Carre, Head Coach at Thomas McKean High School, will coach the Blue squad.
