Dear Newport Harbor Football Alumni and Supporters,
On behalf of the Newport Harbor football alumni that played on the 1974, 1977 & 1978 Division I Southern Section CIF Semi-Final teams, we are proud to sponsor Newport Harbor Football Boosters to carry on the legacy of Coach Pizzica.
We expect this contribution to increase significantly over time, as we reach out to each and every Sailor who gave their heart to Coach Pizzica, both on and off the field. Pizzica stood for nothing less than a 110% commitment to a program that continues to carry on the traditions of “hard-nosed” football. Pizzica instilled a competitive spirit in many of us who went on to play collegiate football, thrive in business and be the best we can be as community citizens. We will miss him sorely, as he has left an indelible mark on many of us.
The funding that comes from us, the Sailors of 1970’s, should represent the values of toughness, accountability, perseverance, leadership, work ethic, execution and most importantly “trust and faith in your fellow teammates”. We believe this is what Coach Pizzica saw in you when he hired the next Head Football Coach to replace himself with Jeff Brinkley that he would carry the torch of TAR BALL at Newport Harbor. No one had a bigger heart for Newport Football than Coach Pizzica. As we would later hear, he would travel from his home in Temecula every week after he retired in 1989 to watch every game he could when he was physically able. You were his proud moment every Friday night in the Fall!
So go out this year on the road in 2016, as we reconstruct Davidson Field, knowing that each and every one us who played for Bill Pizzica respect and deeply thank you for your achievements, football leadership and the CIF Championships you have brought to Newport Harbor Football. Please accept these funds his name!
