In 2007, Anderson High School faced off against Turpin High School in the OHSAA Division II Football Regional Championship game in Cincinnati, OH. With the two schools located a mere 3.3 miles apart, the Anderson Township rivals have played against one another in all team sports since 1976. However, from 2002 until 2006, the two teams discontinued their annual football meeting, leaving much to be desired from both student athletes and members of the Cincinnati community.
With the Regional Final and the State Title 10-year anniversary behind us, our film centers around the pageantry and intensity that is the Anderson vs. Turpin rivalry. On a wild night at Princeton Stadium on November 16th 2007, friends (both former and current), colleagues, peers, and coaches came together for one of the greatest, and most memorable games in the state's history.
In our upcoming film, A-Town Divided, we celebrate the privilege both teams shared playing in that game and rivalry, and the eventual crowned winner of the 2007 OHSAA State Championship Division II Final in Canton, OH.
Two schools. One township. One game that changed it all.
