The Xaverian Hawks football team will take on the St. John’s Prep Eagles at Fenway Park on Wednesday, November 21 at 5:00 p.m. in the annual battle for the Brother William Drinan, C.F.X. trophy and for the title of Catholic Conference Champion. The game is scheduled as part of a four-game high school football series at Fenway. Eight local high schools will compete over two days in a pair of doubleheaders at the ballpark.
“As a fellow Xaverian Brothers Sponsored School, we enjoy a special camaraderie and a good-spirited athletic rivalry with St. John’s Prep,” said Brother Daniel Skala, C.F.X. “Any opportunity to play at the famed Fenway Park is exciting, but for both of our schools to be able to play there twice in one year (in April for the ALS Awareness baseball game and now again for Thanksgiving football) is exceptional. We are grateful that so many of our student-athletes will enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. We look forward to seeing many in the Xaverian community at Fenway, from current families to alumni, and to another exciting chapter as the Hawks and the Eagles battle for control of our shared Brother William Drinan, C.F.X. trophy.”
The Hawks and the Eagles have enjoyed this spirited Thanksgiving matchup since 1992. The Brother William Drinan, C.F.X. trophy (named after the Xaverian Brother, William Drinan, who served as head of school at Xaverian and subsequently at St. John’s Prep) is given to the winning team each year, to keep on their campus until the following Thanksgiving game.
