LOOKING GOOD IN GREEN & GOLDSINCE 1928

Hudson Falls businessmen William Angleson, Fred Burns and Dr, Francis D. Moynihan founded the Hudson Falls Greenjackets.

Initial financial support came from local merchants and equipment was loaned to the team by Hudson Falls and Whitehall High Schools. Named the Greenjackets as part of a contest in ’28 by a young girl. She won a free pass to all of the games that season!

Hudson Falls joined the Eastern Football League along with the Albany Knickerbockers, Watervliet Mariners, Troy Bearcats, Saratoga Brown Bears and the Fort Ethan Allen from Vermont. The first Greenjacket’s game was held at Derby Park on October 14, 1928 against Saratoga – admission was only 35¢ cents.

In May 1969, The Greenjackets joined the Empire Football League as a charter member, winning the inaugural championship. The ‘Jackets went on to win 5 more championships in 1976, 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2017.
