Guilderland football

Guilderland football played the home opener of the 2021 season on Sept. 17. It was also pop warner night. The “players of tomorrow” joined the varsity team and cheerleaders on the field at halftime.

On Friday, April 30, the Guilderland Dutchmen football team took on a usual foe in the Class AA playoffs: Shaker. The game lived up to the hype, with both teams the number one seeds in their respective divisions.

Win and get in: The Guilderland Dutchmen won against Christian Brothers Academy last Friday night at home, qualifying for the Class AA playoffs next week. The Dutch led from the start, concluding with a 41-to-19 win. Guilderland will face undefeated Shaker at Shaker Friday night at 7 p.m.

Guilderland and Voorheesville were on the road for their sectional quarterfinal matchups last Friday and Saturday. Both football teams had a rough time against their opponents.

The Voorheesville Blackbirds and Guilderland Dutchmen are facing this season with new field generals since their mainstays graduated in June. The Dutchmen and Blackbirds opened the season last Friday and Saturday.

As the weather changed, the play on the gridiron rose for Guilderland, Oct 21., and Voorheesville, Oct. 22, football teams during sectionals.

The boys of fall are back on the gridiron, gearing up for a state championship in football. Guilderland started on Sept 2 vs Niskayuna and Helderberg Valley on Sept 3 against Whitehall.

“It is the most emotional sport known to man,” former football coach Harold Clayton Kenyon Jr. said.

The athletic department and its supporters will still be celebrating 60 years of football at Guilderland this fall but the plan to dedicate the field to Coach Harold “Bud” Kenyon has been scrapped.
