State Championship Tailgate Party on Friday
Once again, MooneyFootball.com will host a pregame tailgate party in the Stadium Park Pavilion behind Paul Brown Tiger Stadium in Massillon starting around noon. We will be providing free hot dogs, hot chocolate, coffee, cookies and other snacks. The pavilion is an easy walk from the home side parking lot via several paths. Spread the word to all alumni and friends of the school. Feel free to bring any other food items you wish. There will be a fire in the pavilion fireplace to help keep everyone warm. Unfortunately due to the time of year, the restrooms next to the pavilion will be closed. We also welcome any fans of Clinton-Massie to join us before the game! Feel free to contact me with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org. The location of the pavilion in relation to the stadium is below:
