Revere High head football coach Lou Cicatelli said the team’s annual Ironman Competition will be pushed back this year to a date still to be determined.
The competition includes strength and agility events and is usually held the last week of June and culminates Cicatelli’s annual youth football camp.
“As of right now, there will be no camp this year,” said Cicatelli. “We’re going to meet with Dr. [Dianne] Kelly and Mr. [Frank] Shea to get an idea on the scheduling of football-related activities,” said Cicatelli.
The “Ironman” is held on the sands of Revere Beach directly across from Kelly’s Roast Beef, who generously provides the post-event foods, including its signature hot roast beef sandwiches. “Dan Doherty of Kelly’s has been great and helps us out every year,” said Cicatelli.
The RHS football team, which is coming off an NEC championship season and deep playoff run, usually competes in a 7-on-7 passing tournament each summer, but that event will likely be canceled.
