Alumni rockin' on for the Rockies
PLYMOUTH — Fans will help the Rockies rock on at the team’s home opener Friday night.
The Plymouth Alumni Association will host WTCA’s pre and post game shows under the tent at ‘The Rock’ Friday with a little help from special musical guest The Charles Dalton Band. The party starts at 5:15 p.m. before Plymouth takes on Rochester in their first home football game of the new season.
‘Plymouth High School and Plymouth Alumni Association are joining forces in the first of a series of pre and post game events including live radio shows with members of the PHS coaching staff and music by the rock n roll band The Charles Dalton Band’ featuring Chad Morlan, one of PHS own,’ said Dean Colvin, PAA Board Member and one of the organizers of the event. ‘This is a great opportunity for all who support our academic and athletic graduates to meet rekindle friendships, associations and experiences we had as PHS students.’
Morlan is a Plymouth Grad, a member of the Plymouth Alumni Association and lead vocalist of The Charles Dalton Band. The experienced group with Jeff Shepherd on lead guitar and vocals, Adam Guy on drums and vocals, Scotty Rocker on bass and vocals play modern and classic rock with influences from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. The band has a wealth of experience, and a never ending set list of playing what people want to hear.
The Band will be ‘Rocking On’ as WTCA-AM 1050’s Tony Ross hosts his pre and post game shows on the station featuring Plymouth Head Coach John Barron, the Rockie ‘Player of the Game’ and much more including a special Alumni Association feature.
The Plymouth Athletic Booster Club will be grilling for the fans enjoyment and the Music Boosters have a great selection of concessions for every taste.
The idea is to bring together those interested in Plymouth schools to keep them strong and celebrate the Plymouth experience.
‘Universities and colleges have long seen the benefit of bringing the most valued resources of their work together in furtherance of the institution,’ said Colvin. ‘There are countless reasons why the core of our educational foundation should be taking advantage of the same opportunities. The Plymouth Alumni Association offers the perfect means by which to foster and environment to bring those resources together.’

In addition to the musical entertainment for the night, the alumni association will be featuring local fighter Ricky AKA ‘Mr. Snuggles’ Miller on WTCA. Miller, undefeated in his professional career thus far, will be fighting again Sept. 2 at Coveleski Stadium. Miller, the 2010 PHS graduate and son of Rick and Barb Miller, plans to be on air at 5:45 p.m.
