On Saturday, June 21, 2015, Rebels Jack Lavanchy and Andrew Papirio got one last chance to don the blue and orange of Walpole, as they played for the South All Stars in the 37th Annual Shriners All Star game at Bentley College, winning 14-13!
The Walpole Gridiron Club is pleased to announce that “Greater Boston Urology” is the 2015 Walpole Gridiron and Alumni Golf Tournament sponsor!
Congratulations to Coach Barry Greener for being named the Patriots Coach of the Week by the New England Patriots, as reported by our friend Danny Ventura of the Boston Herald.
What a fantastic honor for the man that has dedicated almost his entire adult life to the Walpole High School Football Program. Wonderful, wonderful choice by the Patriots; this could not have gone to a more deserving man. Coach Greener embodies in every way the motto of the Rebels program: Pride Tradition Excellence. Please take a moment in the next couple of days, whether by phone or email or in person, to express congratulations to Coach for this most deserving honor. And let this honor be the fuel that will propel the Rebels to the next three victories in the next three games of the season!
We were saddened to learn of the passing on November 14th of Chip Upton, WHS Class of 1977. Chip played both football and hockey at WHS and was a member of the 1976 Super Bowl champions; he played safety/cornerback and wore uniform #87 with great pride.Read More
On the first night of the season, the Rebels defended Walpole's southern border from the invading Warriors of Foxboro. On October 17, the Rebels held our northern borders secure against the great floods and attacking herds of Mustangs. This Friday, we will repel an attack from the West, as another band of Warriors, this time from Medfield, try to upset the Walpole Rebels at 7 p.m. at Turco Field. (Don't worry East Walpole, you face no threat from your border town to the east.)Read More
It is well documented that Walpole is one of the most Irish town in Massachusetts. Our biggest social event of the year is the Friends of St. Patrick Luncheon every March [watch the photo display and find at least five former Rebel players - what a surprise!!]. Also,Walpole's favorite bar/restaurant is Finnegans Wake, named after Irish author James Joyce's novel of the same name. Finnegans owner Tom Kirwan has been our gracious host for many years after Rebel Home games. However, Walpole showed the visiting Shamrocks of Bishop Feehan NO hospitality, Irish or otherwise, last Friday night, trouncing Bishop Feehan 28-7.
The year was 2007. The Red Sox had just won their second World Series in three years by beating the Colorado Rockies 4 games to None. This year's Senior players were hot shot 5th graders at Boyden, Old Post Road, Fisher and Elm Street elementary Schools. But something else of serious note happened in the late Fall of 2007. IT WAS THE LAST TIME THE REBELS PLAYED THE SHAMROCKS, AND REBS DIDN'T LOSE (as they say) THEY JUST RAN OUT OF TIME!
Walpole has been Seeded Number 1 in Division 3 Southwest and has secured home field advantage throughout the Playoffs with our win over Natick last Friday Night. That means as long as we keep winning, the next 3 playoff games will be at home at Turco Field in Walpole.
Walpole will play number 8 seed Bishop Feehan at Turco this Friday Night at 7:00 to open playoff run. Let’s show Rebel Pride and come out in full force to make the home field an advantage!
Here are stome online stories about tonights epic battle of the former unbeaten Natick Redhawks and Walpole Rebels.

Great quote from Coach Greener: "Papirio is the most underrated player east of the Mississippi," Walpole coach Barry Greener said after his team moved to 7-0 (5-0 BSC). "He's a phenomenal football player, but he gets overshadowed and it’s unfortunate. He's a stud." Please see HEROES discussion in our game story! Click HERE for the WickedLocal Natick Report.
HERE is a little blurb from the GLOBE. Please note, we wrote our related story before reading the Globe Story. Swear on a Bible. Because here is what the Globe says, which will sound very similar to parts of our article: "Walpole’s defense was relentless and the offense played well, but it was the special teams that led the eighth-ranked Rebels to a 17-14 win over sixth-ranked Natick that secured the Bay State Herget title on Friday night."
Here is a funny one, given the outcome of the game. Click HERE for the Herald pre-game story. But watch for the whopper of a curve ball Coach Greener tosses out there. Hysterical, again, in light of knowing how the game turned out, and how well the Rebel D played. (Coach Greener's Dad was a career CIA man, so we think PSY-OPS runs in the family blood!)Read More
