Football No Longer on Thanksgiving Day

It will be earlier in the week.

Spring-Ford High School football was set to face Phoenixville High School on Thursday morning at 10 a.m.; however, since Phoenixville is still in the playoffs, the Rams and Phantoms will be playing at 7 p.m. on Wednesday night.

The Phantoms play again on Saturday. If the Rams can win the game, they will win the PAC-10 outright.

It is sad to see the passing of a tradition. Some people favor the state playoff system when the chances of a local team going all the way to the state finals are slim. The local league takes a back seat. In stead of Spring-Ford playing for the championship on Thanksgiving day we hear all about the state playoffs. Forgive me for showing my age but I remember as a boy coming to see Spring City play Royersford on Thanksgiving day. That was a classic tradition that I miss. Now another one is coming to an end.

Although I graduated from a neighboring school district, many years ago, I am in total agreement with Mr. Brunner. Thanksgiving Day was spent each year at the football field, sipping hot chocolate and cheering our football team on, as they played against our rivals. Regardless of how our team ranked, the Thanksgiving Day game was the biggest game of the year and I could not have imagined a Thanksgiving without going to the game. It is such a shame to watch so many old traditions being thrown to the side without a care in the world.
