Week 4 Football Preview: The Battle for the Bell

By Jeremy Balan

The beginning of the league season begins for every San Francisco high school football team, but it’s the first rivalry game of the season that will be the highlight of the weekend.

They call it the “Bell Game,” a 69-year tradition between Lincoln and Washington that often matches Academic Athletic Association powers. The winner gets to keep the Victory Bell for the year and ring it at the end of the game.
