The oldest high school football rivalry in the nation was about to go away this year without a fight – or at least a good-natured joke. With the English High vs. Boston Latin Thanksgiving football game cancelled due to COVID-19, some daring members of the English High Alumni Association, and some current players and coaches, gathered at Harvard Stadium to call out Latin and have a little fun in such difficult times. The game has been played continuously since 1887. This was the first year it was not held.
