BROOKVILLE â€” The Brookville Area school board discussed at its meeting last Monday the possibility of allowing the football field to be used for a planned alumni football game between the Punxsutawney Chucks and the Brookville Raiders.
The board ultimately did not take any action on this proposal, apart from advising Mick Stormer, the eveningâ€™s spokesperson for and captain of the Brookville alumni football team, to resubmit the facility use form so that the board could review it at a later date, in a special meeting if need be.
The Brookville alumni football team previously went head to head with Punxsutawney on the latterâ€™s home turf last year, on Nov. 5, 2011. The alumni Chucks won the contest 14-6.
Stormer came to the board hoping to schedule a rematch for Dec. 1, this time on the Raidersâ€™ home field.
He said he hoped to have it at the Brookville football field for two reasons: firstly, there is an opportunity for profits from the game that go to the host team; and secondly, he believes the location could bring about an increased turnout.
There was no official, final decision made with regard to Stormerâ€™s request on the behalf of the alumni players and Alumni Football U.S.A.
