The community of Northfield will honor their fallen coach tonight.

Jimmy Hoopes had served for years as a football coach for Northfield’s Pee-Wee division in the Atlantic County Jr. Football League.  Hoopes recently passed away, leaving behind a hole in the town’s football program.  Hoopes was considered a mentor to many young men in Northfield.

A salute to Coach Hoopes will take place tonight at 7, inviting current and past players to gather and “walk the bases” in honor of a man who will be missed.
