With Lancaster marking its centennial season of football, the annual rivalry with Depew took center stage as one of the highlights. The schools played against each other for the 92nd time Friday, but the game was only part of a week filled with a bonfire, pep rallies and motorcades by both schools, a homecoming dance and much more. “We look at Lancaster-Depew as one of the greatest rivalries not just in Western New York but New York State and the country,” said Brian Wild, Lancaster’s athletic director and an alumnus. News Photographer Harry Scull Jr. spent Friday with the teams and in the community to provide behind the scenes of the rivalry.
