One of the biggest rivalries in high school football with Douglas holding a 79-64-8 lead over Bisbee dating back to 1906. The teams played each other multiple times every year until 1955. The only years the team did not play were 1918 (flu), 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994 and 2020 (COVID). Bisbee beat Douglas 7-6 at Don Luis Park in 1906 on a 55-yard run, fumble and recover from Blair to make it 5-0. (TDs were 5 points). Rice scored from 6-yard out and he made the kick to put Douglas up 6-5. Rice fumbled in his own end zone near the end of the game and he was tackled for a safety to give Bisbee the 7-6 win and the ‘Copper Pick” trophy started in 1944.
