It’s fall and it’s all about football at RFH and the winning streak for the team.
On the heels of RFH’s second big win in an NJSIAA Tournament game, we take you back to a typical home game in a pic that features the RFH champ spirit that endures decades — nearly half a century, in this case.
The Retro Pic(s) of the Day bring us back to playing the field in a game at RFH in 1975.
The Bulldogs, not for many years later referred to as Dawgs, finished that season with a 5-3-1 record “against some very strong shore teams,” according to the 1976 RFH Yearbook.
Captains were Mike Gilhool, Chip Kelly and Geoff Zipf. (Yes, that’s Clean Ocean Action Executive Director Cindy Zipf’s brother.)
Coaches? Do you know who is pictured punting? It was his thing. Hint: His family is still in the Rumson-Fair Haven area; and, his brother’s name is Jeff.
