On Nov. 2, 1895, the newly-formed football team at Fremont High School journeyed to Sandusky to play its first game against Sandusky High School. It was the beginning of the second-oldest high school football rivalry in the state.
 
Since then, the teams have met 106 times in the regular season and once in the playoffs. The players have included an Olympian, a top NFL draft pick, a Heisman Trophy winner, and scores of athletes and coaches who went on to notoriety and success.
 
The game of football has grown up around the rivalry, which predates the Ohio High School Athletic Association, the NCAA, the NFL even the forward pass. Through changes in the game and changes in the high school football landscape the two teams keep meeting, sometimes for league championships, sometimes for playoff berths and always for the sake of rivalry and tradition.
 
Take the field with author and sports journalist Vince Guerrieri as he recounts the amazing legacy of a truly historic rivalry.
