Foodball was the brain child of Hoquiamite Jill Bellis in 1981 when she thought up an idea to reignite the rivalry between the two high schools for a good cause.
She didn’t know it at the time but she ended up creating a new tradition that has continued into it’s 38th year! Jill’s idea for the new event was to simply merge high school football with donations for local food banks that, at the time were in need. Her idea was embraced by the two schools and Foodball was born!
