Why doesn’t Everett have a semi-pro football team?
Everett is home to Teddy Peanut Butter, McKinnon’s, multiple breweries, and now Encore Casino.
And yet we are most famous for our beloved football team, the Crimson Tide.
The Crimson Tide and its coaches have worked incredibly hard across multiple generations to earn a haul of high school championships, eventually becoming equally known for breeding winners as well as possessing an unmatched ability to send out a siren call to the talented athletes in our region who moved to Everett specifically to play for our division 1 program.
We’ve all grown up attending games and watching the Crimson Tide stack their championships one atop the other, and there’s signage as a reminder to everyone traveling down Route 16.
