Test 3

Rocketeers soaring in anticipation of Saturday

NORTH ATTLEBORO - No one carries on the tradition of Thanksgiving Day football better than the Red Rocketeers of North Attleboro.

The annual game against Attleboro is not only the final game of the season, it's also the final time seniors will wear North's red and white on the gridiron.

Add to that the chance to participate in a game commemorating the 100th anniversary of the first meeting with Attleboro in 1921 and you have a day every will remember for the rest of their lives.

Football captains Jacob Silva, Jared Penta (whose twin brother Matt is also on the team), Harry Bullock, cheerleading captains Holly Grover and Angela King, cheerleading coach Patty Johnson and her husband, head coach Donnie Johnson shared with North TV their thoughts on being a part of the Century Game.
