All-time series: Xaverian leads the overall series, 21-18. This series includes one of the greatest football games in North Shore sports history, a 1997 classic which St. John's Prep won, 15-13, on a last-second play. Future NFL players Brian St. Pierre and Wayne Lucier starred in this game for the Eagles.

Parking: There are parking lots all over the St. John's Prep campus, but having said that the game is usually well attended by both sides. The earlier you arrive, the shorter walk you'll have to the stadium before the game (and back to your vehicle afterwards).

Insider tip: If you feel like you can't wait for Thanksgiving dinner later in the day, St. John's Prep always hosts an early morning breakfast prior to the game. In addition, there are usually plenty of tailgaters offering all kinds of delicacies prior to kickoff.
