Grosse Pointe North and South participated in their annual rivalry football game on Friday Oct. 18th with the message being “One GP.”

This slogan is promoting a positive and friendly rivalry so that both schools can come together as one GP and have fun. The Blue Devils have dominated the rivalry match for the last two years by following up a 54-0 win last season with a 42-0 win this year. 

The energy surrounding the game is unreal, according to varsity player Joey Klunder ‘22. Students at both schools can’t wait for the game every year hoping that their team will come out on top.

“The North-South rivalry is the ultimate small town football experience,” Klunder said. “It gives the community a chance to come together as a whole and watch a good football game, and it gives players a chance to give it their all and show out in front of thousands of people. Nothing compares to the excitement of running into that field with all of the energy from the fans.”

This rivalry has been going on for years and will surely continue for the foreseeable future. Friendly competition is the goal for the two schools and students and the community are the start of that.
