Tonight begins a four day Smörgåsbord of Walpole High School athletics the likes of which we have never seen before.
This new MIAA schedule is turning out to be more interesting than we first thought. The Rebels continue their trek through unchartered waters Friday night when the Hingham Harbormen come to Turco Field. As this is only the third home game of the season, we hope Coach Greener can find the home uniforms in time to host the Patriot League representatives, currently sporting a 4-5 record.
Who are the Hingham Harbormen you ask?
Walpole came within 2 yards of pulling off what would have been a monster upset over unbeaten Natick last week. Going for the win was the Rebel way of doing things, and could have led to a momentous victory. We don’t know if or when the Rebels have ever scored 55 points in a game.
What prepared the Rebels to play so well against such a good team? Practice? Coaching? Weight lifting? No, it was Toilet Paper!!
After what will go down in Walpole high school history as one of the most gut-wrenching weeks ever, what with the tragic passing of Tommy Quinn and the one-point heroic loss to Natick, the Walpole Rebels this week get to experience something no other Rebel team has - this new three game schedule of unknown teams to determine who goes to the Super Bowls. Walpole certainly drew a worthy opponent for this Friday night - the Red Rocketeers ("Big Red") of North Attleboro, and the Hockomock League. Let's analyze what we are up against...Read More
It really needs no further explanation. No matter what this year's records are, no matter what happened the past few years, "Norwood Week" has been and always will be a week like no other during the Walpole High School Football Season. This is a rivalry that, well, rivals, Red Sox-Yankees, Hatfields-McCoys, Harvard-Yale in its longevity and intensity. This game, for these players, is a season unto itself. This year the game is in the friendly confines of Turco Field, under the lights. Couldn't get any better.
Tonight's game against the Milton Wildcats is a big night for the Rebels. The report from the players is that Milton is big and has many talented athletes. Milton is currently 2-2, with one of those losses coming on the first week of the season to #3 ranked Mansfield. They are only one game behind the Rebels in the standings. So, this is certainly not going to be the automatic win it has been in past years. However, if the Rebels win tonight, we are told they make the playoffs. See you in Milton!Read More

Clichés abound in sports, and nowhere more than in football. Some say "football builds character" and some say "football reveals character." We are going with the second one to describe the performance of the Walpole Rebels in their 49-35 win over Wellesley on Saturday. When it looked like things were not going their way—with Conor Moriarty out with an ankle injury, down 21-13 at halftime facing a Wellesley quarterback who at times seemed to run and pass at will, and with momentum clearly on the Raiders' side, the still-developing Rebels put together a second half which exemplified what Walpole football is all about.
