Brookline Knights Football Association
The 1990 Termites
Undefeated, Untied, Unstoppable

The undefeated, untied 1990 Brookline Termite football team (8-0) ended its season with a 28-6 victory over Crafton in the opening game of the Western Pennsylvania Youth Football League championship finale at Greenfield.

Led by quarterback Mike Kenny, split end Barry Guyy and running back Justin Rhule, who also contributed a safety and interception on defense, the young Knights joined their older Midget counterparts, winners of the final contest as Brookline brought home two out of three WPYFL titles. A Mitey-Mite defeat in the middle contest prohibited a clean sweep, but the two titles were a first for the steadily improving Brookline youth football program.

Congratulations to head coach Russ Creely, coach Robert Richards, Tracy Rhule and her talented group of cheerleaders, and the entire Termite team for a great year. President Dan Smaglo, in only his first season at the helm, has positioned his Knights as the team to beat in the 1990s. With such a talented group ready to move on to the next level, the chances look promising that this could be the decade of the Green and Gray warriors from Brookline.
