Tonawanda beats Class C North rival Wilson


Tonawanda News —

Three plays later Boling unleashed his bomb to Snyder and the Warriors cruised to victory.

Former Warriors QB Rick Cassata was one of the members of the '63 team that was on hand Friday night to take part in the celebration. He marveled at the new stadium, looking around the field and remembering the days he used to walk through the same stretch of land from his home two blocks away to the school.

As far as his '63 Warriors, he said they were a pretty darn good football team.

"We lost one game in four years and the one thing I remember about my senior year was that we punted less than any team in the whole country," Cassata said. "In eight games we punted four times — that ain't bad. We had a bunch of tough guys and a lot of good athletes on that team."

Cassata was thankful and appreciative to the Tonawanda community for its support and dedication to THS football.

"Fifty years later I can't believe I'm alive first of all," Cassata said laughing. "Secondly I got to see some old coaches and teammates, and I have my grandkids here. It's very special and it will last a long time for me. It'll go good with my cold beer tonight."
