An annual community event held at Roy Anderson Field drawing thousands of fans to witness history as the cross-town rivals battle for bragging rights: The Peninsula High School Seahawks vs. the Gig Harbor High School Tides. Thus far … Tides 17 wins. Seahawks 14.
For those that have yet to witness a Fish Bowl, you are missing out. This is truly a community event. Students, parents and fans pack the stadium, so get there early for a seat. For players, it’s a real treat. The crowd support, noise and involvement creates a huge stage for players to live out their dreams of playing in the “Big Time”. It might not be the “Big Time” as viewed by some outsiders, but Frosty Westering (PLU Pacific Lutheran University football coaching Legend) always said … “Make the Big Time Where You Are“. And here it is … under the Lights at 7 pm!
And … there will be some “Big Time” with all eyes on Austin Seferian-Jenkins. Austin, a 6-foot-7, 260-pound tight end suiting up for the Tides in his senior season, has committed to the University of Washington next year. Go DAWGS! He is “Big” and headed to the “Big Time”. With all of the additional press he has garnered this off season, I’m sure we’ll see plenty of curious fans eager to see what the buzz is all about.
So, which side are you on? Hawks or Tides? Many of the community members in attendance are non-partisan…they just want to see a good game and enjoy high school rivalry football as it was meant to be played under the lights … as a community. Be sure to join us, get out there and explore your Gig Harbor community and get involved. Kick off is at 7 pm. Life is Good … in Gig Harbor 🙂
