Walpole travels to Milton this Friday night, for what promises to be a crazy, wide-open, and potentially high scoring affair. Milton has a new coach, who says this about his talented senior quarterback, Mike Fallon: "There's no doubt that Mike Fallon will set several, if not all single-season passing records here. That's what happens when you change to an offense that throws the ball 30-plus times per game." That's very unusual for a high school football program. The Wildcats have scored 60 points in their first two games, a 34-24 win over common foe Needham, and a 26-20 win over Quincy.Read More
Rebel Nation extends its heartfelt congratulations to Coach Chris Costello for being named varsity baseball coach, to succeed legendary Bill Tompkins who retired after this past season.
The Walpole Rebels open the 2015 campaign by hosting the Marblehead Magicians on Friday, September 11, 2015 at Turco Field. The rain will have passed, and the Rebels begin the 2015 season on a perfect September night for football.
Walpole has never played, nor even scrimmaged, Marblehead as far as we know. So who are these invaders from the North? Like Walpole, they won their league last year (in fact, they were NEC Champs 2009, 2011, 2013 and 2014), so this will be a clash of winning traditions, not to be missed!
We are looking forward to getting the concession stand up and ready for business for the 2015 Season. As in the past, every family is expected to contribute soda and Gatorade to the snack bar.Read More
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!
Summer Gut Camp is almost complete and the new strength and conditioning program has been a great success. The boys have invested a lot of time and effort into their summer workouts and this commitment will pay off as we head into the formal practice schedule over the next few weeks.Read More

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!
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!
