Vintage High School Football: Summit vs Governor Livingston High School in Berkeley Heights (1977)

My name is Mark Wadmond I own a local business in Summit that focuses on filming high school sports and making student athlete highlight reels for college.

I recently located a canister of film hidden away in a closet, which turned out to be a Summit Vs Governor Livingston football game from 1977. I am obssessed with converting old film and video footage of New Jersey High school football.

I immeditately was thrilled upon my discovery and have converted films and tapes to dvd to add to my collection of over 65 games throughout the years.  When you combine music to these silent films, it feels like you are watching those old black & white and color films that the NFL used to produce in the 1960's and 1970's.

Along with a few of the films I have found old program guides of individual games and even two radio broadcasts, that even with a bit of static can still be understood. 

Check in often, there will be new stuff weekly.
