Team to recognize players from 1965-1969 before season opener

Lance Parnell, 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 third consecutive year, Parnell, in conjunction with Cassville High School, is inviting former Wildcat players to be a part of the Alumni Night at the Wildcats' Aug. 21 game against Aurora.

"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 as our current roster."

The Cassville Wildcat Football program is inviting all football alumni who played the 1965-1969 football seasons (graduating classes 1966-1970).

"The community of Cassville has embraced football, and Wildcat Nation has become an amazing 12th man for us over the years." Parnell said. "That support stems from the great alumni we have here in Cassville. We are very proud of our tradition and would like to honor you as our special guests."

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.
