John Hayden Donates Important Game Ball

Commissioner John Hayden donating important game ball back to Newport Schools!  It was a great season that year, except when Willie Slaughter broke his ankle in practice that week, so as a team the game ball was dedicated to him.  It was quite a win over Highlands and their stadium was filled with a sea of red that night!  Score; Newport: 24 - Highlands:15
