Yes, it’s the season at RFH when it’s pretty much all about football.
But, what about those days when it was about powder puff football, too?There were those days — at least in the late 1970s. And they’re back again with the recent resurgence of the girls’ game. This year, the juniors lost to the seniors.
Cheers to sunny fall days!The sun is finally out and it’s something to cheer about. So, we’re taking you back, once again, to a special crew of RFH cheerleaders — the boys of RFH’s Class of ’78 in an encore of this Oct. 8, 2015 Retro Pic of the (George) Day from two views! Cheers!
The 1977 RFH Powder Puff Football game was a good one that made for some great photo ops.
RFHers have fallen into football season with the usual panache. Everything about playing the game has always been done in true pro style — from the players to the cheerleaders.
Though, while cheerleaders are still cheering at RFH, they do so with different outfits and cheer style. And seeing cheerleaders all dressed up like some 1977 guys on the sidelines is something that never happens (or at least like this) anymore.
In keeping with the spirit of the recent Knollwood School Hoops for Hearts tournament in Fair Haven, we decided to bring back a hearty glimpse of some favorite RFH cheerleaders, courtesy of the great photography work of George Day.
No, they were not cheering for a Hoops for Hearts basketball event, but just think what kind of funds they could have raised for such a cause back in the day — by virtue of how they simply wear their uniforms.
They’re running to their main stage in front of the bleachers here for a 1970s RFH Powder Puff Football competition.
I can’t remember, but someone must have missed a pass while getting a gander of this appearance.
These guys are flipping wigs and losing, uh, parts making this run!
