2023 Game Details

When: Saturday, November 4 @ 2 p.m.
Where: Away (John McDonogh Stadium)

Please note that McDonogh is expecting a larger than usual crowd and is asking Gilman fans to park in the corporate campus lots at the north end of the stadium, on either side of Red Run Boulevard, off Painters Mill Road. The two closest to the stadium can be found at 10045 and 10055 Red Run Boulevard; overflow parking is available across the street at 10090 Red Run Boulevard. Security will be patrolling all lots, and trash receptacles will be available.


While McDonogh will be supplying the food trucks this year, you may join us in the Gilman Community Tent where tables, chairs, refreshments, and giveaways will be available. Pre-game festivities begin at 1 p.m.!

Gilman alumni, families, and friends of all ages will be gathering for the 107th installment of the best rivalry in high school sports!

The annual Gilman-McDonogh football game is the second-oldest interscholastic rivalry in the state of Maryland. The first football game between the two schools was played at Gilman on October 12, 1914.
