Little players, big field

Published September 2, 2018 / by Steve Berentson

Pee Wee football players had the rare opportunity to experience “Friday Night Lights” when they took the field at Rice Field during halftime of the contest between AHS and Roosevelt High of Seattle. Several squads “scrimmaged” as an attentive crowd responded with cheers to big plays. Kudos to volunteer coaches who invest in a big way into these youngsters’ lives.

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
