Sussex Tech and Cape Henlopen are traditional rivals on the football field. This Saturday June 18 Ravens and Vikings players and coaches will be on the same team. The Blue Gold All-Star Football Game held in Newark pits graduated senior football players from northern New Castle county, the Blue, against those from Sussex, Kent and southern New Castle county, the Gold.
Tech Head Coach Mark Quillin and Cape’s Bill Collick are assistants on the Gold staff. “You battle that week you hate each other for that week but after that we’re all in it together,” Quillen said. “We’re all football coaches that are part of that football family.”
“It’s going to be fun working with those guys,” Collick said. “I actually took a picture with a couple of his (Quillin’s) players to bury the hatchet.”
