Ready for Football?

We are so excited for our football season this year! Seneca's new Athletic Director, Paul Holien, has kept Seneca Past and Present up to date on all of the great things going on in Athletics this summer and now we are ready for the football season to start. We have a new coach, Keith Eckloff, committed athletes and now it is your turn to show committed support! Come out for our scrimmage THIS FRIDAY, August 9, at 6:00pm and support the team. Admission is FREE and all Seneca alumni are welcomed.  It would mean a lot to the boys if there were a lot of former football players there so, get the word out!  Seneca Past and Present will have hamburgers and hot dogs FREE for alumni. So come out and support the team!
