For Spartans Football Fans, the first game of the season always includes a few key elements, a promising new team, the Amity Dance Team (Cheerleaders) and Announcer Stan Gedansky in the box.
Unfortunately this year, one element will be missing. A few days ago, the aging Gedansky took a spill and suffered some serious injuries. He is hurting and recovering from broken bones.
It is expected that he will miss the first few home games, but Athletic Director Paul Mengold found a stand-in to do the announcing in Stan’s absence.
Former Amity Linebacker (Class of 1982) Eddie Choiniere will be in the booth, announcing the play-by-play as he did on occasion last season.
We wish Stan a speedy recovery and hope his wife Rita is doing well.
Go Spartans! Win this one for Stan!
