Framingham High interim Principal Amy Gerade welcomed everyone to the event and then Garcia had the microphone for the rest of the rally.

The Division 1 State Champion cheerleaders performed first, then the dance team, and then the football team came on the field, with their head coach Dave Wright telling everyone his team believes they can defeat “the team to the East.” Coach Wright said his team does not say the work “Natick” they are just the N-community to the east.

Framingham has won just one game this season and is 1-9 going into the 10 a.m. Thanksgiving game.

Host Natick is struggling this season – for them – at 5 and 5.

Tickets need to be purchased online. Tickets are $10 adults and $5 for students.
