Senior sendoff


It’s a storied tradition that’s reserved for a select group of student athletes, namely those senior class boys and girls who represent Johnston High School in Rhode Island Interscholastic League football as well as cheerleading.

So, prior to Friday night’s final regular season home game vs. visiting East Greenwich, seven members of head coach Joe Acciardo’s Panthers – and their parents – were honored during a special pregame ceremony.

This time though, Senior Night included a new tradition courtesy of the Gridiron Club that purchased replica football jerseys for the three senior boys.

Meanwhile, the senior cheerleaders from head coach Susan Parillo’s squad were also honored and received flowers.
