On Saturday, Edgewood High School in Atco, NJ held a reunion for all former football players, coaches, and cheerleaders. The Y2K Eagles overpowered the Triton Mustangs by the score of 56-0. This year's team reminds some people of the 1969 and 1970 teams that overpowered their opponents with great running, passing and defense.

During halftime 85 ex-players and cheerleaders were introduced to the crowd. Each person was given a shirt the read, "The green and white of glory in our hearts will never die". They also gave ex-coach Bob Lee an award for his years of service as head coach. Principal Michelle Ferner read the inscription to the crowd. "Coach Bob Lee, In appreciation for your many years of service to the thousands of young men who played football at Edgewood High School, in our final year as that high school, our deepest gratitude". The current band and cheerleaders put on the final touches to a great halftime.

The game ended like most of Edgewood's games. They scored touchdowns at will, Dennis Davis and DJ Deramus scored, and QB Nick Rosetti passed the ball well. The defense came up with another great performance with another shutout.

Here is a list of the 85 people that came back:
