A couple dozen men played in the Turkeybowl, Thursday morning, in Ken-Ton.

It's part of a decades old tradition between Ken East and Ken West alumni. 

The annual game has evolved from just a bunch of recent high school grads, to those same guys, their families and children.

"Everyone looks forward to it, the kids put stuff on Facebook like a scouting report, an injury report...it means everything to us," Dennis Danheiser said. 

Danheiser has organized the event for the last 35 years. 

"[After the game] we go over to my house for Thanksgiving dinner -- we have about 18-20 people and it's just a great time," Danheiser said.
