On Saturday, April 20th, Milford will host the annual University of Delaware, Blue-White spring scrimmage. Talking with newly appointed Milford athletic director Mike Tkach, he said that the school is very excited to be hosting the event “There where several locations that the University of Delaware looked at, it’s another feather in our cap to be hosting such a big event.” he said. There will be a whole lot more then a scrimmage, the following is from the University of Delaware web site:

“A new event will take place this spring when the Blue Hens take to the road to hold a scrimmage on Saturday, Apr. 20 at Milford (Del.) High School. Fans are invited to come out for a day of free fun, football, and giveaways beginning at 12 noon. Concessions and merchandise will be sold and tailgating (no alcohol permitted per school district policy) will be encouraged. The scrimmage will begin at 2 p.m.

Youngsters will have the chance to take part in fun football skills with members of the UD football team, Radio Disney will be on-site to provide interactive fun, and Delaware t-shirts will be distributed to the first 150 fans in attendance.

Bounce House fun and the team’s gameday inflatable helmet will be up for fans to make their entrance. YoUDee and the University of Delaware cheerleaders will also be on hand to add to the spirit. A post-scrimmage Football Meet & Greet will give fans the chance to join their favorite Blue Hens football student-athletes on the field for autographs and photos.”

This promises to be a great event, and another opportunity for Milford to demonstrate our community spirit.
