Stratford will mark the 25th anniversary of its 1988 state championship team during this year’s Thanksgiving Day game against Bunnell at Penders Field.
The Red Devils went 10-1, captured the Class SS state championship and were voted the No. 1 team in the final Register Top 10 Poll.
Stratford’s four captains that season were former Red Devils coach Duane Shirden, Curtis Eller, Peter McKoy and Robert Yearwood. They were coached by the late Walt Czekaj.
Members of the football team, cheerleading team and highsteppers team should contact Eller at firstname.lastname@example.org, Laurie Marranzino-Piroh at email@example.com, or Stratford Athletic Director Bob Baird at (203) 385-4240 or firstname.lastname@example.org if they plan to attend.
Reservations are requested to be submitted by no later than Nov. 23. There will be a registration tent set up for the 1988 team at the field and they will be recognized at halftime of the game, which begins at 10 a.m.
