20th Annual Greenacres Turkey Bowl and Tailgate

TurkeyBowlThe wind chill temperature was 10 degrees at kickoff time but nothing was going to stop 25 fathers and sons from participating in the 20the anniversary of the Greenacres Turkey Bowl and Tailgate party “The best lousy football in America” Most of the kids playing weren’t born when Keith Schutzman started the game in 1999 because he lived across the street from Greenacres Field and felt it was his responsibility to organize a traditional Thanksgiving Touch football game. There were 6 players that year Over the years the game expanded to include the players sons, many of who have played football for Scarsdale High School. The Pregame and Postgame party has also expanded as the number of players has increased to almost 30

Several of the players were over 60 and the highlight of the game was when the oldest played on the field, 69 year old Ed Coleman of WFAN Radio made a diving catch for the game winning touchdown. Other participants included Keith Schutzmans sons Grayson and Cole, Brian Hogan and sons Brett and Colin, Lorenzo Patrizio and sons Lawrence and Daniel, John Kantor and sons Finbar, Dermot and Patrick, Jon Bosco and son Max, Charlie Kramer and son James, Peter Del orto and son Andrew, Peter Doyle and Mark Nadler (who played in the first game in 1999.)
