After Long Wait, Brewster to Play Sleepy Hollow

Players have "faith" in teammates.

Brewster's varsity football team is set to take on Sleepy Hollow, in the second playoff game, at home 3 p.m. today.

The faceoff was originally slated for Tuesday, but Hurricane Sandy hit, pushing everything back. 

At the Bears' last practice, Coach Ed Mulvihill said the team was performing well and implementing a "special package" for Sleepy Hollow. The players were in great spirits, following a close win over Walter Panas.

"It was a nailbiter, but we've had a few of those so we were ready for it," he said. "My wife came home and said 'Everybody was so nervous!' The kids aren't really that nervous. They're used to this, and they're prepared for it, so when it came time to make a couple trick plays, they were really ready to go. Not nervous at all. They're really excited about this new opportunity."

Check out the photos above for insight from the players.

I'm looking forward to a great game. I also heard that there was a food and other necessities drive. If so would you send out an update about it. If everyone brought a 5$ item it would hi a long way.
