Six retired professional football players will be golfing and socializing at The Matheny School’s “Par-Tee on the Links” golf tournament being held on Tuesday, September 27, at the Oak Hill Golf Club in Milford, NJ. The appearance of the former NFL players was coordinated by Dave Szott, director of player development for the New York Jets, who was an offensive lineman for the Jets, Kansas City Chiefs, and Washington Redskins. Szott is also the father of Matheny resident, Shane Szott, and a member of Matheny’s Board of Trustees.
The other past players who will be in attendance are: Greg Buttle, who played linebacker for the Jets; former Jets running back Bruce Harper; Marty Lyons, retired Jets defensive tackle and current radio analyst; former New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers center Bart Oates; and onetime Jets wide receiver Wesley Walker.
Funds raised at the golf tournament will support technology for Matheny’s students — children with multiple disabilities. The tournament will begin at 11 a.m. with registration and a shotgun start. Cost is $175 per person, or $650 for a foursome. Sponsorship opportunities are still available.
