CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - The New England Football Writer's Association Luncheon returns to Harvard's Dillon Field House today at 12:15 p.m. The event is the nation's oldest weekly football media gathering and is now in its 81st season.
The event features the Thomas Stephenson Family Head Coach for Harvard Football Tim Murphy as well as head coaches, players and administrators from around the region from all levels of NCAA competition. This year's event will be streamed live via the web on GoCrimson.com.
Fans can login to Harvard's Multimedia section of the website to watch the streams. Recaps of the event will be posted in the afternoon and will be sent to media and area schools as well. Local fans can do even better as the event is open to the public for a fee of $10 per person.
Each school's coach/administrator will speak briefly about his team's last game, a preview up the upcoming games and an assessment of his team's top players. Additionally, the weekly Gold Helmet Award is given to the preceding week's top players. The award is sponsored by the Gridiron Club of Greater Boston and the weekly winners - one from Divisions I and one from Divisions II/III - are presented with a plaque.
