SUMMIT, NJ - It won't be long before fall officially arrives in the Hilltop City, which means that Summit Football will soon be kicking off its 2019 season. The Maroon and White will look to defend the State Sectional Title they captured in 2019 when they defeated Rahway in front of the hone fans at Tatlock Park.

Before, however, the pigskin gets placed on the tee to kick off the new campaign, Summit Football will be placing a different kind of ball on a different kind of tee September 7 in a fun and unique program fundraiser, hosting a Golf and Barbeque event at the Summit Municipal Golf Course and the Knights of Columbus.

Golfers are invited to the 'The Muni' at 3:30 p.m. for a 4 p.m. start. Following golf, a barbeque with all of the trimmings -- including burgers, hot dogs, salads, beer, wine and soft drinks -- will round out the festivities, which will also include a live auction featuring sports event and Broadway tickets, spa days, airline tickets and more.
