Webster Groves and Kirkwood High Schools have jointly made the difficult decision to end our 2020 football seasons as of today, November 13th. The decision was made in response to an increasing number of concerns related to COVID-19 cases and quarantines which have limited the ability of both programs to have consistent practices over the last few weeks which as a result could lead to an increased number of more traditional safety concerns associated with playing football.
This decision means that the annual Turkey Day football game between the two schools will not be played this year.
We are proud of our coaches, student-athletes, and their families for their cooperation and commitment to all of our safety protocols over the last several months that have allowed us to manage as much of a positive football experience as was possible during this time.
This year would have been the 112th varsity meeting between the 122 varsity football teams of both schools. Webster still leads the series of all games 54-50-7, but Kirkwood leads the series in Turkey Day Games, 43-37-5. Kirkwood also has an unprecedented string of seven wins in the Turkey Day Game. May the Bell ring for you this Turkey Day!
