Flashback: Glengarry’s football past

I recently came across this Facebook post from the Glengarry County Archives, showcasing a successful Char-Lan High School football team from 1959.

High school football has had its ups and downs locally over the years, including a stretch of some two decades without the sport.

While some schools, including Tagwi Secondary and Glengarry District, have been able to bring the gridiron game back (and currently field teams), others, such as Char-Lan, have not done so, primarily due to small student populations. They have been replaced by Catholic institutions, such as Holy Trinity and St. Joseph’s.
