The dates have been set for Captains Football Weekend at St. John’s Prep: Friday, Oct. 17 and Saturday, Oct. 18 (which also happens to be Homecoming Weekend). The Prep will host B.C. High that Saturday. George Gagnan is heading up the committee and hopes to have 100 former Eagle captains there for the re-dedication of Arthur Cronin Memorial Stadium, which is named for one of his former teammates.
