John Carney, a 1983 Cardinal Newman graduate, is one of the 91 former Newman players expected to attend Friday’s game against Pahokee, the marquee event of the school’s celebration of 50 years of Crusaders football.
Longtime Cardinal Newman coach Sam Budnyk, who retired after the 2003 season after spending 44 years on the sideline, has spent weeks reconnecting with former players, inviting each player personally.
