The city’s titans of the gridiron clashed Friday for the final time before Memorial Field’s face lift, 63 years after the original field was christened.
Roars poured from the stands as bands and cheer squads rushed around the bowels of the stadium in preparation for the Bulldogs and Indians to meet for the 61st time. It was loud. It was homecoming. It was Burbank-Burroughs.
Burroughs Athletic Director Marty Garrison walked the sideline and greeted his former players before reminiscing about the importance of a game he’s attended nearly every year since the 1960s. Every year but one, Garrison said.
