Local military veterans and first responders were honored for their service by Oswego High School, Friday, Sept. 13, by serving as honorary captains at the varsity football game against Plainfield South High School.
Honorary co-captians were: John Hodgson, Rick Gardner, Shawn Sadler and Mike Wellington.
The patriotic spirit extended into the stands, as the members of the Orange Crew student cheering section wore red, white, and blue attire, and hung a large banner emblazoned with "Never Forget" in front of the section, to commemorate the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks earlier that week.
Oswego High School went on to win the varsity football game by a score of 34-6 over Plainfield South.
