Calling Members of the 1972 Avenger Football Team! – East Greenwich News

For a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the RI Super Bowl series

If you were a member of EGHS Avengers 1972 Championship Football Team, a series of commemorations are in the works for you and members of other teams who played in the 1972 Super Bowl Series.

A group of people including the RI Interscholastic League, the RI Coaches Association, the Providence Journal, sporting directors and former players from Cranston East and Woonsocket (the two teams that played in the Super Class A Bowl) are planning a series of activities to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Rhode Island High School’s football Super Bowl series. They are looking for participation from EGHS and Middletown teams that played in the Class B Super Bowl (EG won).

Current plans are for events over Labor Day weekend 2022. There will be pre-season matches at Brown Stadium on Sunday, September 4: Cranston East vs. Woonsocket and EGHS vs. Middletown. They are planning a dinner for the players, coaches and families of the 1972 teams on Saturday evening, September 3 at Tomaselli’s in Rosario in Providence. They are also looking for photos to use to commemorate and publicize the events.

Please send a message to Faith Krause at [email protected] if you can help and/or wish to attend.
