    Yesterday | Sentinel & Enterprise

    There would many bumps along the way during this process -- head coach Tom DiGeronimo's first year at the helm -- but the key for these Red Raiders was to stick together and battle until the very end each and every day. Fitchburg's trust in DiGeronimo and the program reached a climax on Thanksgiving, as the Red Raiders snapped Leominster's eight-year dominance on Turkey Day with a pride-restoring 34-21 triumph at Crocker Field in the 136th overall meeting and the 111th on Thanksgiving between these two storied high school programs.

    If you have an advantage on the field over an opponent, the smart money is on that coach who will try an expose that weakness.

    Thursday | Sentinel & Enterprise

    The food was on the table, but one key element was missing at this year's Thanksgiving dinner at the Fitchburg Housing Authority's Day Street building: Donald S. Sparks II.
