Easton (PA) and Phillipsburg (NJ) 1993 Part Deux!!

The High School Football Huddle

Gatorade is hoping to break a 15-year old tie between Easton (PA) and Phillipsburg (NJ). According to a report in the Express-Times, Gatorade has asked the schools if they can find 25-to-30 alumni players each from the November 25, 1993 game that ended in a 7-7 tie. According to the report, Gatorade wants the two schools to put the 30-something players on the field to "play it again Sam" and break the tie as part of Gatorade's program highlighting great American high school rivalries.

The Easton-Phillipsburg rivalry is one of the best in the country. The two schools are separated by the Delaware River, and this past year played their 102nd game on Thanksgiving morning at Lafayette College. Phillipsburg is New Jersey's winningest high school football program, while Easton is #2 in Pennsylvania.

The game is big enough that it's been aired live on ESPN twice.
