For many South Hagerstown football players, Friday's game at North Hagerstown will be the final opportunity to beat their rivals.
For some, it will be the only opportunity to play on artificial turf, For many - like senior Eric Phillips - it will most likely be the last football game they ever play.
"In a nutshell, this game means everything to me," said Phillips.
Phillips and his teammates have yet to taste victory against North Hagerstown. The Rebels last won the city brawl in 2002, and they'd like nothing better than a win in the 51st edition of the rivalry, and the first to be played at Mike Callas Stadium.
"I've lived in Hagerstown my whole life and we always went to the game as a family growing up," said Rebels quarterback Wes Samples. "I've played football since I was six and it's always been a goal of mine to play in this game."
