The Rivalry

A Profile in Tradition

Authored by Dave Leone
Edition: 1

Set against the backdrop of the transformation of the American way of life over the past century, "The Rivalry: A Profile in Tradition" takes an in-depth look at the amazing interstate rivalry that has not only thrived, but grown in stature and come to be recognized as one of the finest high school sports rivalries in the country. For more than a century, the Thanksgiving Day contest between Phillipsburg, NJ and Easton, Pa has galvanized the residents and fans of both communities, providing them with a chance to come together and express their support for a rivalry they've come to revere.

This incredible rivalry, which Easton leads 63-42-5, has it all: a long and storied history spanning more than a century, as well as great tradition. Heading into the 2017 season, P'burg is ranked #1 in New Jersey with 675 wins, while Easton is ranked #2 in Pennsylvania with 829. The game embodies a natural interstate rivalry between two proud programs in bordering states who are separated only by a free bridge spanning the Delaware River. The outcome of the game has such significance to the players, coaches, fans, and residents of each community that nearly all will agree: it is more important to win this game than it is to win a championship.
