In a week full of anticipation for schools that are just four miles apart, just two days remain before it's revealed Friday which team secures the coveted trophy for the next 365 days.
The Edison-Fountain Valley football game, known in familiar circles as, The Bell Game, is about many things: pride, bragging rights and hardware, to name a few. The prized hardware the teams battle for is The Bell, which goes to the winner of this annual showdown.
It's what both the Chargers (6-2, 3-0) and Barons (3-4-1, 1-2) are gunning for.
"Since I've been here, this has always been the game," said Fountain Valley Coach John Shipp, who will experience his seventh Bell Game as head coach Friday. "It's such a huge rivalry. People who may or may not have been to a game for either team this year will be out there for this one. The communities of both schools really get into this game. It's a huge event.
