This was certainly a sad ending to a great season for Coach Kramer, his coaching staff and team. It was a blown call as video replay shows but I don't know how you can have a review process that would be fair to all especially if their game isn't covered by Time Warner Cable. Schenectady has shown that their youth program is working and they will be true player in AA football for years to come. Thanks for all your hard work and dedication Coach Kramer, staff and players!!
