You’ve seen them before … this crew of daring, not so diabolical RFH guys who had a little skateboarding club. Call these views the triple threats.
Football season is winding up — or down — at RFH.
But it wasn’t always just about football at game time back in the day — as if that wasn’t enough. As tradition had it, there were always lots of things happening before, during and after games, whether on the field, off the field, around the bend or, well, in the parking lot. Yes, the parking lot.
Well, the soggy state of the area lately has been drying up and making way for some falling for fall activity — or not falling. In the last Retro Pic of the Day, we offered a glimpse back into RFH skateboarders doing some impressive balancing acts on the boards on an area street. Yes, it was Sycamore.
Turns out it was a weekly (or more) occurrence at the hands and boards of a few RFH pals.
It’s fall. So, it’s apropos to fall back in time with a couple of RFH guys and their skateboarding antics.
The spirit of Halloween has officially swooped in on us like a wicked witch on a fired-up broomstick!
So, the Retro Pic of the (George) Day is, well, several pics in a slideshow of none other than the happy tricksters and treaters of RFH’s Class of ’78!
So, here’s to the retro spirit of haunting from a classic RFH gaggle of ghouls!
And, thanks to the fabulous George Day for these spectacular shots!
It’s not every day that you get the chance to grab a bite of good ol’ RFH cafeteria grub — or a little Halloween sustenance, let’s say.
It’s also not every day that you get the chance to “cop a squat” in the RFH senior lounge to ingest the spirit, or spirits, of the day in the company of Harpo and Groucho Marx.
When it comes to RFH cheerleading, the spirit is still the same, but the look and sound of it all is a lot different from what went on down on the field decades ago.
Sometimes it’s not just the spirit of the season. Sometimes we are haunted by good memories. The year was 1977. It was an RFH Halloween.
Seniors of the Class of ’78 were geared up for some ghostly fun. They gathered in the Senior Commons and paraded around, and, yes, out of the confines of the RFH campus.
If some old RFHers had a winning turkey wishbone to yank on, they may have a revisiting the past wish. Back in the day … The RFH football season used to peak with what then was the classic rivalry homecoming/Thanksgiving Day game between Red Bank Catholic and RFH.
Yes, football season has kicked into high gear at RFH, so let’s take a moment to tackle this handsome team of players of an unknown year as well as the issue of name and uniform style.
Is it all in a name or uniform? Certainly not. It’s all about the game and how it’s played, of course. But, there are some quirks worth taking the ball and running with for a bit. No harm, no fumble. Just fun.
The parting of the clouds to make way for some fabulous fall weather has set the scene for some good ol’ partying with friends. And, back in the day, the same kind of scene was well set for those RFH cool kids.
By nature, there are a lot of very theatrical things about a fun fall day at the beach with a buddy, especially when you’re an RFH student and theatrical sort.
