On Sunday, November 29, at 9:00 p.m. (check local listings), FSN affiliates nationwide will premiere a one hour special on REPLAY Season One: the Easton Area Red Rovers vs. the Phillipsburg Stateliners. The game was the 104th meeting between two of the nation’s biggest high school football rivals and settled their 1993 game that ended in a 7-7 tie. The Easton, Pa., vs. Phillipsburg, N.J., game has been played annually since 1906 on Thanksgiving Day, drawing crowds of more than 20,000 fans each year. After undergoing an intensive 10-week training and conditioning program developed by the Gatorade Sports Science Institute and Velocity Sports Performance, the athletes, now in their early 30’s, donned their helmets, strapped on their shoulder pads and laced up their cleats to participate in a full-contact, regulation game in front of a sold out crowd just as they had 15 years earlier.

“Gatorade believes once you’re an athlete, you’re always an athlete,” said Dr. Kim White of the Gatorade Sports Science Institute. “REPLAY allows us to take our science from the lab to the field by leveraging our deep understanding of sports hydration and nutrition and the expertise of a variety of training partners to help prepare these athletes for another shot at glory. In addition, the REPLAY athletes will help us garner a deeper understanding of the needs of a variety of athletes.”
