In keeping with tradition Pasadena High School and John Muir High School will once again use all their energies to struggle for their school honor in the annual Turkey Tussle. The Turkey Tussle is the annual homecoming tradition between Pasadena High School and cross town rival John Muir High School.  This tradition began in 1947 when the game was played between Pasadena Community College and John Muir Junior College. These two schools played until 1953.  In 1954 the annual rivalry was played between what is now Pasadena High School and John Muir High School. 

Possession of the Victory Bell is the prize for the winning school. The Victory Bell a long-standing tradition between Pasadena High School and John Muir High School came as a gift from the Santa Fe Railroad presented in 1955 at the pep ralley for the Turkey Tussle. The student body at PHS, which then shared the same campus with PCC, though the two were not affiliated, wanted to start many traditions which would last through the years. When it came time for the Turkey Tussle, they talked of having a bell.
