At 6:30pm on Monday, July 19, at the Dover Public Library community room 525 N. Wooster Ave. the public is invited to hear about the renowned high school football rivalry between Dover and New Philadelphia. Smalley will share the first trailer and a story from the script. There will also be time for questions and answers about the project.
Learning about the history and stories from past players and coaches will enhance knowledge of Tuscarawas County and a love for football. Many have been interested in the rivalry over the years since it’s beginning in 1905. In 2011, Matthew Lautzenheiser a 1995 graduate of Dover High School wrote a book which is available on Amazon entitled, “The Dover-Phila Football Rivalry: A Tradition Shared Through Its Greatest Games.”
The new documentary highlights football games from the early 1900s. It contains key figures in the history of the local game, including coaching staff and players. The film is scheduled for release the week of the schools’ 117th meeting in 2021.
