There's no place like home: Punxsy defeats Union in home opener

September 6, 2013

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Fifty years ago to the day, the 1963 Punxsutawney Chucks kicked off their legendary season.

The Chucks finished the season 10-0 and became instant legends in the town.

Fifty years later, on the night of the current Chucks' home opener, the legends returned.

After a battle of attrition last week went to Brookville 25-22 in Punxsy's season opener, it's not like the Chucks needed any extra motivation.

If they did, though, they found it with the 1963 legends, who were honored at halftime.
