New Haven Gridiron Club to honor former UConn DL

Nate Cotton, a first-team All-Yankee Conference defensive lineman as a junior in 1986 and as a senior in 1987, is among eight former New Haven area standouts who will be inducted into the New Haven Gridiron Club Hall of Fame on Sept. 17.

Charles Bertero, an assistant coach at UConn from 1973-76, will also be among the inductees.

Headlining the list of honorees will be former Southern Connecticut State head coach Kevin Gilbride, who earned two Super Bowl rings as the offensive coordinator of the New York Giants.

The ceremony will begin at 7 p.m. in the Cascade Banquet Facility in Hamden. Tickets are $50 ($45 for club members) and must be ordered by Sept. 10 by sending checks to the New Haven Gridiron Club, Box 32, New Haven, 06501. No tickets will be sold at the door.

If anyone with the Gridiron Club is looking for fundraising ideas, I suggest checking out BoosterShot (http://www.goboostershot.com/). They have a unique set of fundraising products that our community loves to support. My HS Gridiron Club has used them for a few years now, and we raise over $6K every year. They are really hands-on and help ensure we meet our fundraising goals.
