Congratulations Brookline Knights Midgets and Mitey-Mites

The 1998 season was the first year for the Brookline Knights website. It was the 25th year for the Knights football program. The past four years had seen an upsurge in the program, and the teams were doing what they did best, win football games. The Midgets were coming off back-to-back championships, the Mitey-Mites were strong and Termites were looking to step up and keep pace with the big boys.

This was the year that Jo Jo Lamonde lit up the scoreboards with a record-tying 27 touchdowns. Along with quarterback Anthony Doria and receiver Chad Flora, Lamonde led the Midgets to a 12-0 record and their third consecutive WPMFL championship. The Mitey-Mites, led by Ross Ventrone, Darnell Payne and C.K. Mayo, also added their names to the Knights Hall of Champions. The Termite team, who lost their first four games, finished 4-1-1 and also made the playoffs, but were unable to match the post-season achievements of their brother Knights.

Enjoy this brief look back at the Brookline Knights 1998 season. Panning through the photos brings back some good memories. The Knights are one big family. The names and faces change as the years go by, but the camaraderie and thrill of it all lives on.
