High School Fight Song and Secret Plays

I found this gem at a Norwalk, CT estate sale and I would really like to know its age. This was likely a cheat sheet carried by a member of the Darien HS football player during a clash with the Red Raiders. Derby HS football team is called the Red Raiders but I can't find a history of these 2 teams playing each other.  Here is the fight song:
 On the back are 4 formations with the "red Raider" name written below.  Was someone spying and handing the X,Y,Z, and super-secret "J" play over to the home team?
I hope someone can fill in the blanks here. I wish I went to Darien High School in the 50's or 60's...sounded like a real party place. Or, maybe it was all just talk?
