The Pataskala Rotary Club initiated the “Battle For Broad Street” event a number of years ago to fuel this friendly community-wide competition.  The Club designs and sells t-shirts and other items to promote the BIG GAME.  Also a large team spirited spaghetti dinner is traditionally held at The Nutcracker on Monday evening prior to the Friday night game.

The winner of the big football game between Watkins Memorial and Licking Heights will be presented with the Pataskala Rotary Club’s traveling plaque labeled “Broad Street” and a special city street will be named for the winning school.
