There may not be a Thanksgiving when high school football games are more appreciated than in 2021.

Thanksgiving is for family, food, and football – and not necessarily in that order. There's no better Massachusetts Thanksgiving tradition than high school football. It's a perfect storm of returning alumni, socializing, and players competing in their final games.

Most high school football players will never play in games watched by bigger crowds, and for most seniors, they will never play the game of football, competitively, again.
