From the Oliver Ames Football Boosters:
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.
