Father’s Day Pancake Breakfast Sunday

One of the great Winthrop traditions takes place Sunday when the Winthrop High School football program hosts the annual Father’s Day Pancake Breakfast at the Winthrop High School cafeteria on Pauline Street. This is a new location for the breakfast, as a new school is being built on the former high school site, but Winthrop residents can expect a wonderful, all-you-can eat breakfast consisting not only of  pancakes, but eggs, sausages, bacon, muffins, milk, tea, coffee, and juice. That’s quite a breakfast and the $7 ticket proceeds help support the team.

It’s hard to believe, but this breakfast has been a staple for forty years, with coaches Robert DeFelice, Tony Fucillo, and Sean Driscoll carrying on this event and getting the full support of the community.

Speaking of Sean Driscoll, he will be coaching the South team in the Harry Agganis All-Star Football Classic, certainly a reward for his tremendous leadership as the Vikings captured the Northeastern Conference championship and went 10-0 before falling to Lynnfield in the North sectional championship game. Sean’s son, Dylan Driscoll, and teammates Tyler Gillis and James Griffin will represent the Vikings in the game that is named for Harry Agganis, the former Lynn Classical great who played for the Boston Red Sox following his football career at Boston University.

And finally, good luck to Shriners All-Star Sean Gillis, who will be playing in the Shriners Football Classic Saturday at Bentley University.
