It looked more like a hockey game than a football game when Christian Brothers College High School hosted their rivals on Saturday afternoon in St. Louis.
That’s because CBC alum and Penguins forward Joe Vitale was honored with a halftime ceremony where his No. 16 high school hockey jersey was retired. Vitale was joined by his wife Brianna, daughter Summer, mother Mary Ann, dad Sam and a number of aunts, uncles and cousins.
“My family all had Penguins shirts on,” Vitale laughed. “You didn’t know whether it was a CBC football game or a Penguins hockey game by all the shirts and jerseys. I come from a big Italian family. They’re overly proud.”
