SUMMIT, NJ - Turns out that black might just be the new black.

The boys from the 07901 on the gridiron will be in black and so, too, will a huge majority of the fans in the stands. Summit High School Football's annual 'Friday Night Light' game is just around the corner, and that means the always popular commemorative T-Shirts are about to go on sale.

Priced at $20 each, the shirt entitles the wearer to complimentary admission to the October 6 game played under portable lights at Investors Bank Field, and which this year features the Hilltoppers against Governor Livingston. Kick-off is set for 7 p.m.
