Fort Hamilton High School held its annual awards luncheon to salute its football team on Saturday, Feb. 4, at the Bay Ridge Manor, 476 76th St. After coming off a 2010 championship year, this season the Tigers compiled a 7-2 record and made it to the second round of the PSAL playoffs, despite losing two quarterbacks to season ending injuries.
"I'm proud to be the principal of a school that the New York Post included as one of the 50 most successful high schools in New York City," Principal Jo Ann Chester said in her opening remarks. "All the players, coaches, parents and cheerleaders, enjoy the accolades this afternoon because you deserve it."
Varsity Football Head Coach Dan Perez had some key advice for the outgoing seniors in attendance.
"Apply the lessons that you learned on the field to life after high school," Perez said. "Remember, you always have a home at Fort Hamilton because you're Tigers forever."
