During their September 26 game against Glasgow High School, members of the Middletown High School football team will be wearing pink jerseys emblazoned with the name of someone who has battled cancer. That family member will be honored in a pre-game ceremony and receive the jersey right off the back of his/her player, at the conclusion of the game.

Now the players are giving their fans an opportunity to do the same buy pink “Beat the Beast” shirts for the same cause.

Commemorative pink t-shirts emblazoned with the message “Beat the Beast” are now on sale for $10 each, and can be purchased at Middletown High School during school lunch periods throughout September; by filling out an on-line form available at, and providing form and payment to receptionist Chrys Mills at the Appoquinimink School District Office on 313 South Fifth Street, Odessa, DE 19709; or by purchase on game night at the stadium. Shirts come in adult sizes S through 4XL.

Volunteers from the American Cancer Society, The Helen Graham Cancer Center and Miles for Melanoma will provide cancer awareness information at the game, and prevention messages will be featured prominently throughout the stadium and at information stations. All proceeds raised by the event will be given to local non-profit organizations dedicated to the fight against cancer.
