Upper St. Clair-Mt. Lebanon game selected for Series

February 1, 2010

The Upper St. Clair-Mt. Lebanon Game has been selected by the Great American Rivalry Series for the inaugural season of Great American Hockey Rivalries. Working alongside the United States Air Force, the Series will cover the action as these longtime rivals face off tonight at the Ice Castle. Known for their intense competitive spirit in all sports—and especially hockey—the two school districts are adjacent to one another, adding fuel to the fire in this “backyard brawl.”

The Great American Rivalry Series emerged initially to celebrate the cultural phenomenon of Friday night high school football, shining the spotlight on classic gridiron clashes where expectations are sky high and die-hard fans abound. After successful completion of five seasons of football rivalries, the Series has expanded this season to include the winter season excitement of ice hockey.

As part of the Series, the winning team not only earns bragging rights but also the coveted Great American Rivalry Champion trophy, presented by a member of the United States Air Force. The Series will also award the top student-athlete from each school a college scholarship. These awards will be presented in a special pre-game ceremony.

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.
