Annual T-NT luncheon kicks off rivalry week


Tonawanda News — Tonawanda coach Rob Gross spoke about the tradition in the game and in the communities on both sides of the canal.

“We are two very proud communities with proud traditions. I say this every year, but if you go back through history our two programs have over 1,000 wins. Just think about how long that would take,” Gross said in his speech. “That’s the tradition you have become a part of and this luncheon is kind of the marker every year of you taking your place in that tradition. 

“This is a celebration of both programs,” he continued. “It’s not like this everywhere. Make sure you understand how special this tradition is.”

Jay Holler served as Master of Ceremony, NT lineman Ryan Osborn performed the invocation and cheerleaders from both schools performed the pledge of allegiance.
