In a week already laden with tradition and meaning, the kickoff event for this week long celebration of community, families and football took place at the annual Ring Ceremony Dinner. The nationally recognized Thanksgiving Day Rivalry between the Red Rovers of Easton High School (PA) and the Stateliners from Phillipsburg (NJ) is this week.

“This dinner symbolizes the meaning of this game and its impact on our communities” said event organizer Art Kardos. “These rings and this special recognition dinner are totally paid for by the many sponsors and supporters who make all this possible”

What is the Great American Rivalry Series?


Each fall for over a century, high school football has been the centerpiece for families and communities on Friday night. In 2004, iHigh, Inc. created the Great American Rivalry Series to celebrate this uniquely American sport and the cultural phenomenon of “Friday Night in America.” The Series shines the spotlight on top high school football rivalries across the nation, where long-standing traditions are valued, expectations are sky high, and followers are committed.
