Documentary Features Clifton and Eastside HS Football


Last year, TODAY featured the Clifton and Eastside high school football teams in their documentary series "Playing for a Way Out."

Using 'A Day in the Life' format, this 8-minute video focuses on both the on-field and off-field  experiences of players from each school. The teams met at Clifton Stadium on Friday , Oct 16, 2020, with the host Mustangs claiming a 17-6 victory.   

Now, one year later, Clifton and Eastside find themselves playing for the NJSIAA North 2, Group 5 sectional title on Friday, Nov. 19, at 7 p.m.

Several of the student-athletes in this video are expected to play in the championship game, including Clifton senior Nick Burgess.

Pregame is at 6:40; kickoff is at 7:00. Tickets must be purchased in advance here:
