Varsity Football Teams Kick-Off First Official Practice of the 2010 Season

There is a strong sense of excitement, energy, and anticipation throughout the two varsity high school football programs in the Kenmore-Town of Tonawanda School District as Monday August 16th, 2010 marks the first day teams can practice.  The Kenmore West High School Blue Devils, coached by Rich Harris, practiced at Crosby Field.  The Kenmore East High School Bulldogs, coached by Matt Chimera, practiced at Adams Field.

“I’m very excited to start the season.  It is important to show our players that their coaches show up with a high level of passion and intensity.  This is my 26th season coaching and I’m just as thrilled to start a new year as I was during my first season,” said Coach Harris.

“The first day is always exciting and rather hectic.  We are thrilled with our young talent and I’m looking forward to a great year of football at Kenmore East High School,” said Coach Chimera.

There are many new elements to both the Kenmore West and Kenmore East High Schools varsity football schedule for the upcoming season.  The highly anticipated East-West game, normally held on the last game of the season, will be the second-to-last game of the 2010 season.  Kenmore East is the home team.  The heated rivalry will be renewed on Saturday, October 9th, 2010 at Adams Field at 2:00 PM.

Both teams will also be playing Buffalo Public Schools as the BPS enters Section VI this season.  The Kenmore East Bulldogs will host McKinley High School on Saturday, September 11th, 2010 at 2:00 PM at Adams Field.  The Kenmore West High School Blue Devils will play two Buffalo Public Schools.

The Blue Devils will play Hutchinson Central Technical High School on the road on Saturday, October 2nd, 2010 (kickoff TBA) at Robert Rich Sr. All High Stadium and will play Riverside High School at home at Crosby Field on Saturday, October 16th, 2010 at 2:00 PM.

“We welcome Buffalo Public Schools to Section VI and we look forward to our game against McKinley High School, a team with a strong football program,” added Coach Chimera.

“That is a wonderful addition to the Section VI schedule: bringing football teams from the suburbs and city together for great football games.  It will be very exciting playing Hutch Tech and Riverside and we look forward to those games,” added Coach Harris.

While Kenmore West begins the season with a “Friday Night Lights” game on the road against the undefeated New York State AA Champions North Tonawanda on Friday, September 3rd, 2010, by far the most anticipated game on the schedule for both Ken-Ton Schools is the “Rivalry Game” between East and West on Saturday, October 9th, 2010.  Kenmore West was victorious in that game 28-8 last season.
