Series Record: Quincy leads 48-34-5
Look at the Rivalry: Quincy and North Quincy have been playing each other for 87 years. The rivalry is truly unique as it is one of the few intercity rivalries in the state.
I coached in the 2001 edition of the game, a 12-7 Quincy win. The Presidents dominated the rivalry from 1994-2009 winning ten straight meetings within that span.
The Red Raiders have since leveled the playing field. They won three straight from from 2009-2011 and have won three out of the last four meetings. North Quincy won the first meeting between the two schools 6-0 in 1933.
The rivalry is unique and intense at the same time. The city is truly divided when it comes to the game and their allegiances. Both schools have a great football tradition and no matter what their records are going into this game, a win on Thanksgiving is special.
Very few rivalries in the state have the pomp and circumstance of this one. Playing at Veterans Memorial Stadium gives this match up a big game feel each and every year. It is truly a special game. One that I am proud to have been a part of one time.
