Years of Historical Varsity Football Videos are Being Restored

Years of Historical Varsity Football Videos are Being Restored

Earlier this month, the archives received 143 VHS recordings of Pingry football games that had until now been stored in emeritus Head Coach Chris Shilts' classroom. The tapes span nearly a decade and a half of football seasons from 1988 through 2001.

After creating an inventory to determine the contents of the tapes, we began the process of converting each tape to a digital file. Soon, you'll be able to relive some classic Pingry games and cheer on the Big Blue teams of the past!

In the meantime, here's a throwback from November 1991 when Pingry took down McCorkle 43-13. Click on the photo below to watch the video, and Go Big Blue!
