Rumored as one of the biggest rivalries in high school sports, Roosevelt and Garfield high schools meet for the 77th East Los Classic football game tonight. The face-off between the Roughriders and Bulldogs goes back to the 1920s, and has since provided a moment for generations to reunite for a little friendly competition.
Who will be this year’s champion?
Kick off is set for 7:30pm at East Los Angeles College’s Weingart Stadium.
