ELKIN - Would you like to strap on a helmet one more time?
Alumni football is coming to Elkin.
Gridiron Alumni travels the nation pitting old football rivals against each other one more time. And Gridiron Alumni is planning several full-contact alumni football games in the area.
Players are needed to sign up with the first 40 players on each team getting to play. The team that gets 30 people registered first gets home-field advantage.
This past spring, hundreds of players and thousands of fans swarmed stadiums to watch their hometown heroes strap it on one more time and Gridiron Alumni is targeting more of the biggest rivalries in the nation for it’s Gridiron Alumni Rivalry Series. Teams from Elkin, East Wikes, Starmount, Surry Central, as well as other area teams are forming now.
The games are set for early spring. If you or someone you know is interested in putting on the pads one more time, please go to gridironalumni.com to register. If you have any questions, please call Chris Hall at (530) 410-6396 or go to the website.
Gridiron Alumni was founded in 2010 by Hall and has raised over $150,000 for schools and charities using alumni football games as a fundraising vehicle. Gridiron Alumni football has changed lives, communities and given thousands of men their spark back.
