Video Highlights from the 1953 MV-Nantucket Game
The first MV-Nantucket game was played in 1953 on Nantucket. Although MV led at halftime, Nantucket scored the last three touchdowns late in the game to win 33-20. This original film footage was shot by Ken Hearn, whose son Glenn was the quarterback. To read more about the 1953 game, see the MV-Nantucket Game special section in this week's Times, or the PDF version.
