Greenjackets’ preseason game to raise funds for crash victims | Sports

GLENS FALLS — The Glens Falls Greenjackets will play a preseason football game on Saturday as a fundraiser for the families of Jamie Persons and Quinton Delgadillo, who were killed Sunday in a motorcycle-pedestrian crash on Sunday in Lake George.

The Jackets’ preseason game against the Vermont Ravens is scheduled for 5 p.m. at Glens Falls High School’s Putt LaMay Memorial Field.

Persons was a former Greenjackets player more than a decade ago, and Delgadillo was the 8-year-old son of his girlfriend, Jasmine Luellen. She was hospitalized in the crash, which occurred when a motorcycle crashed into six pedestrians on Route 9 near the Warren County Bikeway.

Admission is free, but those attending are asked to bring a donation for the families of Persons, Delgadillo and Luellen, to help with funeral costs and medical expenses.

The Greenjackets are preparing for their Empire Football League opener on July 9 against the Watertown Red & Black, set for 7 p.m. at Schuylerville High School.
