Senior Bowl less than a week away
Let's call it a celebration of area high school football. The second News-Herald Senior Bowl kicks off at 7 p.m.
We'll have stories, photos, video all week leading up to the game. Tickets are $7 and $5 for students and children, but tickets can be purchased in advance for $5 at The News-Herald and The Hooley House, the game's lead sponsor.
Tony Fisher, whose name graces The N-H football player of the year trophy, will be in attendance for the coin flip, as will 2011 co-Fisher Award winners Mitch Trubisky of Mentor and South's Kareem Hunt.
The N-H Senior Scholar Athlete award will be named at halftime. New this year is the addition of a $500 scholarship to the winner. Also new is the Dick Beeler Award, given the Senior Bowl game MVP.
In addition, Kirtland's 2011 state championship football team will be honored after the first quarter, and all area teams that won a conference championships and qualified for the state playoffs will be mentioned.
The N-H Senior Bowl: It's all area high school football fans really need in the summer.
