The Tenafly Tigers and Dumont Huskies will celebrate their 60th consecutive Thanksgiving Day football game this November, 2008.
* (Tenafly and Dumont first played against one another in 1924. Neither team played one another during the 1935, 1944, 1945, 1946, 1947 and 1948 seasons. Thanksgiving Day morning play
began in 1949.) *
The Tenafly HS v. Dumont HS Turkey Bowl Classic is the 2nd longest Thanksgiving Day high school football game in Bergen County.
* (The longest standing Bergen County Thanksgiving Day football tradition began in 1932 featuring rivals Hackensack and Teaneck.) *
This tradition is not solely about a football game; it is an integral community event shared by residents, families, students and alumni.
Our tradition is a cultural asset that can not be terminated or modified without consultation and mutual agreement between our respective public school district's trustees and superintendents.
Organizations, entities and individuals from outside our communities must never be allowed to threaten, undermine or banish our tradition into extinction.
We, the undersigned, request and expect the trustees and administration of our public school district and elected officials of our borough government to exercise their authority to maintain the scheduling of the annual Tenafly HS v. Dumont HS Turkey Bowl Classic football game to be played in perpetuity on Thanksgiving Day morning.
