John Lamb Memorial Scholarship

2nd Annual John Lamb Memorial and Dutchment Football Alumni  7 on 7 Football and Cookout

Save the Date! Friday, June 1st, 2018 from 6-930pm

At the Guilderland High School Football field 

$20 donation per alumni to play

On January 9, 2017, Dutchmen Football fan and parent John Lamb succumbed to his battle with cancer.  John was an avid football fan – he coached youth football and supported the Dutchmen and his three sons – two who graduated, one currently playing, and one currently coaching within the program.  John embodied the values of our football program – commitment, sacrifice, toughness, resilience, diligence, teamwork, determination, integrity, family and love.  


Through John’s spirit, our goal is to raise money for scholarships to be dedicated to Guilderland Football players who best exemplify the values John possessed while bringing together our alumni community to reconnect with teammates, share some memories and make new ones. 

Attendees:  All Dutchmen Football alumni and supporters - current and former players, coaches, families and friends of all ages – are invited to stop by and see old friends, sift through past Dutchmen memorabilia, enjoy a meal or play some football!  Multiple fields will be lined for games with the game field prioritized for alumni. 

Games:  Interested in lacing up the cleats and getting under the lights once again?  The game field will be lined and we will have 7 on 7 football games of 20-30 minutes based on the number of teams participating.   Offense plays from the 40 yard line in and has 4 downs to get 20 yards then 4 to score.  No blitzing; 4 second count.  One-hand touch.   Gentlemen’s rules:  Officiating is by current GHS players!  Draft a team of your own or come that night to meet up with other former players. 

Cookout:  Guilderland Football Alumni families will be manning the grills and providing sides and refreshments.  Attendees will get a bracelet and have the opportunity to purchase tee shirts and look through or purchase various memorabilia.
