KINDERHOOK–Cheryl Trefzger, the co-chair of the Booster Club’s Football Committee, said that her group has been talking about starting a football team at Ichabod Crane school for at least 5 years and that she thinks the discussion goes back 25 years. Ms. Trefzger and her group, co-chaired with Mike Smith, have been raising money for two years to fund a pilot program in the district. The junior varsity is already up and running and the varsity team will start this fall.
The Booster Club will be raising money throughout the year, starting at the team’s first home game on September 4, to fund the program through the 2010 season. After that the school board will have to appropriate the funds to continue the team into the 2011-2012 budget.
