With over 60 years of match-ups, this is more than just a game.  When St Xavier and Trinity high schools take to the football field, the city of Louisville becomes a town deeply embedded in prep football.  This game is one of the prime examples why the term “rivalry” applies to high school football.  Believed to be one of the top high school football rivalries in the country, the game is played annually at Cardinal Stadium and brings in crowds in excess of 35,000 fans.  That type of attendance resembles some high school state championship games, but this game isn’t for a state title.  This game is for bragging rights for the next 365 days and to be the Kings of Louisville until next year.
