JOIN US FOR THE GAME: THE SOUTH'S OLDEST CONTINUOUS HIGH SCHOOL RIVALRY



The annual football game between Woodberry Forest School and Episcopal High School is the South’s oldest continuous high school football rivalry—a fierce but friendly struggle that has consumed students, players and alums of the two prep schools since 1901.  This year the game will be broadcast live by WFSPN, Woodberry's student broadcasting network. Tune in at www.wfspn.org.

Should you choose to attend, you will stand in the field with other guests and watch the action. The dress code is “festive casual” — wear your orange and black! Be prepared for cool or wet weather; rain boots are often a good idea as our fields can be muddy.
