Calling all Belfry alumni, dust off your old cleats.
Alumni football is coming to Belfry. Gridiron Alumni is planning several full contact alumni football games.
Gridiron Alumni travels the nation pitting old football rivals against each other one more time. Players are needed to sign up and the first 50 paid players on each team get to play.The team that gets 30 people registered first gets home field advantage.
Last Spring, hundreds of players and thousands of fans swarmed stadiums to watch their hometown heroes strap it on one more time. You may remember hearing about a big game between Clark and Montgomery County alumni last April.
For 2013, Gridiron Alumni is targeting more of the biggest rivalries in the nation for its Gridiron Alumni Rivalry Series.Teams from some of the most heated rivalries in the state are forming now, including alumni from Belfry and Prestonsburg.
If you or someone you know is interested in putting on the pads one more time, please go to http://www.gridironalumni.com to register. The game is expected to be in the first week of June. Spots fill up fast, so don’t miss out. If you have any questions, please call Chris at 530-410-6396.
