Coach Lance Parnell seeking out former players

Cassville's football coach is a man who appreciates history, understanding the foundation of his program was laid by the hard work of generations who came before.

For the second consecutive year, Cassville Football Head Coach Lance Parnell, in conjunction with Cassville High School, is inviting former Wildcat players to be a part of the Alumni Night at the Wildcats' Aug. 29 game against Mountain Grove.

"I had a great time last year meeting with the former players," Parnell said. "I enjoy just hushing up and listening to them talk. I believe these players deserve recognition. They are as much a part of our football heritage and our current roster."

The Cassville Wildcat Football program invites all football alumni who played the 1960-1964 football seasons (Graduating Classes 1961-1965).

"We are very proud of our tradition and would like to honor you as our special guests," Parnell said.

Check-in will begin in the north end zone at 5:45 p.m., with pregame refreshments provided.

Attendees will have access to the home sideline during the pregame warm-up, and they will be recognized before the game.

Attendees are asked to RSVP by Aug. 1 to CassvilleWildcats@gmail.com with the following information: Name, graduation year, positions played and jersey number.
