High School Football Takes Center Stage on Thanksgiving

Woburn and Winchester will play for the 108th time on Turkey Day.


Along with turkey and pumpkin pie, there's another Thanksgiving tradition that has nothing to do with food—high school football. Each year, schools face off against traditional rivals, in an attempt to claim bragging rights for the following year.

The Woburn Memorial High School Tanners will take on the Winchester Sachems in the 108th meeting between the two teams Thursday.
