Some of Chris Malmsjo’s Football Memories…
Chappaqua Rec League
Playing in the “Big 6” and/or the “Ivy League”
One players unfortunate “accident” during a game…(no one could have handled it better than our leader did!)
Last minute touchdown that clinched the victory over our “evil rival”… Sleepy Hollow
Finally getting some cool new uniforms
“Blowing out” a highly favored Peekskill team to start out the season
Last minute interception that clinched the victory over Yorktown… and the NWIL Championship!
Quickly “Rolling over” our “rival” Fox
Going undefeated in the regular season!Lane in the last regular season game
Winning 20 of the 21 football games played as “one class” from ’70 to ’73!
…but the bitter memory of losing that last game for the County Championship to Harrison
Our great and unique Coaches: Harvey Polcek, Pete Berland, Eddie Ostendorf and of course Nick Perelle
The work, the excitement, the rush, the pride, the camaraderie, the friendships and the fun!
While a good portion of the football games I played in are lost memories to me because of concussions I got playing football playing Eastview (White Plains Jr. High School) our Freshman year wasn’t one of them but I thought we lost or tied that game.
I remember that season like it was yesterday
What a great time it was and what a great team we had.,
