Plymouth State Football to celebrate Currier Day this Saturday

            PLYMOUTH, N.H. - Alumni, family and friends of Plymouth State University Football will gather and honor a former coach this Saturday at PSU's home game against UMass Dartmouth at Currier Memorial Field.

            Saturday is officially Currier Day for PSU Football, as former head and assistant coach Charles L. Currier, for whom the football field is named, will be honored.  Coach Currier served as a coach and mentor of the football program from the very beginning in the late 1960s until his death in 1982.

            The football field at Plymouth State was named in his honor in 1983 and a scholarship was established in his memory. The fund was renamed the Charles L. and Francis F. Currier Memorial Scholarship with the passing of Charlie's wife Fran in 1984.  The fund has been providing scholarships annually since 1987 to Plymouth Regional High School graduates who are attending Plymouth State, awarding over $150,000 to more than two dozen students, including students involved in a variety of extra-curricular activities.

            Former PSU players, coaches and friends and family of Coach Currier will meet at the football game on Saturday, and there will be a halftime ceremony honoring the legacy of Coach Currier. A post-game reception is also planned.
