The Friends of Crusader Football Golf Outing and Dinner took place on Monday, July 18, at the Hopkinton Country Club in Hopkinton, Mass. The event featured 125 alumni, family and friends who came out to play golf and show their support for the program, including Frank Novak who coached the offense in the late 1970s and early 1980s under Neil Wheelwright and Rick Carter.
