During half time Vice President John Pridemore of the Clayton Fire Co. presented a check in the amount of $700.00 to Ryan Knowles and Harry Makhtany of the Delaware Chapter of the Terry Farrell Fund. That money was raised from a “pass the boot” the fire company had at their November meeting and any money collected at the gate during the game.  The players playing on the Clayton Team this year were: Alex Carrow, D.J. Correll, Jack Davis, Gary Everage, Gary Everage Jr., Corey Everage, A.J. French, Ray Johnson, Will Kinsey, Jake Lucas, Wade McNatt, Sam Moran, John Pridemore, Jamie Rau, Shawn Rau, Kenny Rife, D.J.
