DEDHAM - We've reached Week 2 of the High School Football season and a fantastic game will be showcased as our Boston 25 High School GameDay Game of the Week.
Friday will be a special night at Catholic Memorial, as the Knights host St. John's (Shrewsbury).
The matchup scheduled for West Roxbury received 51% of the vote in our online poll.
Butch Stearns will report live at the Game of the Week on Boston 25 News at 5 and 6 on Friday night, September 13. We will also showcase highlights on Boston 25 News at 11 and on the Boston 25 Facebook page.
Catholic Memorial will honor its first responder community and the legacies of all CM alumni lost on 9/11, including CM alumni Mark Bavis '88 and John Cahill '62.

In honor of those first responders in attendance, the football team will wear commemorative jerseys during the game.
Todd Angilly, the official National Anthem singer for the Boston Bruins, will perform the National Anthem prior to kickoff at 7 PM.
Alison Crowther, the mother of Welles Crowther-- the man in the red bandanna who died rescuing at least 10 people from the World Trade Center on 9/11-- will be speaking to the student body earlier that day and intends on staying for the football game.
In the spirit of CM's all-school read "The Red Bandanna," all CM students will receive their own red bandanna after Mrs. Crowther's talk. Each student will write the name of their own personal hero on their bandanna and then tie it against the black fence in front of the high school prior to the pregame ceremony.
