At some point in the Hero Bowl Thursday night, Christian DiGalbo will snap a football into the hands of Colin DiGalbo, who likely will execute the play with precision, the last in a long, long, long series. In the stands, Anthony DiGalbo will be smiling, even if it doesn’t show.
“He’ll probably be crying,” Colin said.
Long involved in Delaware County boxing, as a trainer, a manager, a teacher and a fighter, Anthony DiGalbo has absorbed harder punches without blinking. But when his twin sons play football together for the final time, that could be a shot to the gut unlike anything in a ring.
“Bittersweet,” he said. “It’s going to be very, very bittersweet.”
