Over 250 players, coaches, cheerleaders, family members and guests attended the 2013 OA High School Football and Cheerleading Banquet Sunday Night at Oliver Ames High School.

After a delicious meal provided by Georgio’s of Brockton, the ceremony was kicked off by Booster President Bill Gagliardi. First up to the podium was Coach Jim Artz with a well-choreographed music and slide show of key plays during the year.  Next was the OA Cheerleading group.

Thank you to all the individuals and sponsors who supported the OA Football program last year. You are helping to lead the way in the rebuilding process of the football program and the kids and coaches would not be able to enjoy the experience without your generosity!

Also, thanks to Pat Maguire at Patch, John Quattrucci at the Easton Journal, Jason Daniels at ECAT, and Barbara Doucette Photography for their coverage of the Tigers.

Looking forward to another successful season of OA Football next season!
