The East LA Classic, or East Los Angeles Classic (‘The Classic’) is the homecoming football game for both James A. Garfield High School and Theodore Roosevelt High School.
The Classic is one of the most highly acclaimed and attended high-school football games west of the Mississippi and has taken place since 1925, the year of Garfield’s establishment (with the exception of a span from 1939 to 1948 due to the Great Depression and World War II). As of the 2017 game, along with 6 ties, Roosevelt and Garfield are tied with 41 wins each.
The Classic brings out alumni from all parts of the world, usually fielding crowds in excess of 25,000 per game.
