Talkin’ turkey day football: Wellesley vs. Needham

A folksy-sounding Web radio program called High School Football America chats up Wellesley High School football coach Bill Tracey regarding the annual Wellesley-Needham football game, which at 124 years this time around is the oldest such rivalry in the country. Wellesley leads the series 59-55, with 9 ties tossed in. This year Wellesley has only won twice, but will try to play spoiler vs. 7-and-2 Needham, which clinches a division crown with a win against the Raiders on Thanksgiving Day at 10am in Wellesley. Tracey talks about how special the game is to the players and residents of both towns, and gives something of a behind the scenes look at how the team preps for the big game, including watching old game films from Thanksgiving Day contests.
