Central vs. Prep

Oct. 8 Central vs. Prep Rosenblatt Stadium 1202 Bert Murphy Ave. Gates 5:30 p.m., Kickoff 7 p.m. $8/$6 students through Ticketmaster, $6/$4 students if purchased at either high school or Rosenblatt day-of centralhighomaha.org Fall Friday nights in Omaha have long been full of football field lights, marching bands, crunching tackles and game-breaking touchdowns. Many gridiron aficionados still consider the 1960 match-up between Central and Prep to be one of the greatest games in state history. The game, which was played at Rosenblatt, featured the two top rated programs in the state and both teams were stocked with premier athletes. Central brought a poignant offense with future NFL Hall of Famer Gayle Sayers and Ardell Gunn, and Prep’s stalwart defense had current and longtime head coach Tom Jaworski. The schools played to a grueling 0-0 tie and 50 years later are set to commemorate the game with a rematch at Rosenblatt. It should be a great opportunity to see two still-proud programs battle it out in wonderful Nebraska football fashion.
