The Poly-City football rivalry is among the oldest in the nation.
(BALTIMORE – October 29, 2012) – Two of Baltimore City’s most prestigious high schools will gather on Saturday at M&T Bank Stadium for an annual game that dates back prior to 1900. According to Wikipedia, “In 1889, City's main rivalry started when the first game was played between Baltimore City College and the Baltimore Manual Training School, which was later renamed the Baltimore Polytechnic Institute.”
The same listing noted the rivalry record up to 2010: “Despite City's initial dominance in the series, Poly leads in overall wins with the record standing at 61–54–6.”
In any event, this Thanksgiving season game will bring out alums from both schools for one of the oldest American football rivalries in high school sports in America.
Kick-off is 12 noon.
