FOXBORO -- Gillette Stadium probably isn't going to get the Super Bowl anytime soon -- if ever. But hosting eight High School Super Bowls every year isn't half bad.
Sixteen high schools from around Massachusetts will take over the home of the New England Patriots this week, as Gillette Stadium will play host to eight title games between Wednesday and Friday. This marks the 16th year that Gillette Stadium and the Kraft family will welcome MIAA high school football teams to compete for a state title on the famous turf.
Here's everything you need to know about the big three-day stretch at Gillette Stadium:
