Donora Historical Society Continues Popular Football Event.

DonoraFootball
Donora Dragons Football

Due to the enthusiasm generated from our ongoing game film project, our “Game Film Event” at the Donora Cro Club in 2017, and our presentation “Donora Football Dragons – Part One – 1904 to 1945” in 2018, the Donora Historical Society will host another football event titled “Donora Football Dragons – Part Two – 1946 to 1968” to complete a comprehensive history of Donora Dragons football from the opening kickoff in 1904 to the final whistle in 1968.

Part One included the years 1904 to 1945 and can be repeated on a future date. Part Two includes the years 1946 to 1968.

The event will consist of a presentation using numerous photos and newspaper articles, most of which came from the archives of the Donora Historical Society, as well as the Coach Jimmy Russell collection donated by his daughter in 2013, dovetailed with stories told by Smog Museum archivist and curator Brian Charlton that could feature, but not limited to Coaches Jimmy Russell and Rudy Andabaker, players Tony Romantino, Angelo Dabiero, Steve Turkovich, Tom and Bill Urbanik, Larry Crawford, Bernie Galiffa, Malcom Lomax, Ken and Fred Griffey, and many others.

The event is scheduled for 6:00 p.m. Saturday, October 12, 2019 at the Croatian Club (Cro Club) in Donora located at 329 Castner Avenue. The presentation will be shown in the club hall with food and drinks available for purchase from the Cro Club. The event is free but donations will be gladly accepted. We encourage audience participation by sharing your stories as we present the history of Donora Football through photos, game footage and stories. Former coaches, players, cheerleaders, band members and fans from any era are encouraged to attend. There’s no Pitt football game this day.

Keep in mind we have many game films from this era. If you have any questions on exactly which game films we have, please view the full list on our website under the “Game Films” tab.
