Soddy-Daisy, Red Bank Turn Back Clock With Friday Alumni Game

Set For Friday Night; Cleveland-Bradley Fundraiser Slated April 25

Thursday, April 10, 2014 - by Special to

The first of two alumni football games in the area is scheduled for Friday night at Soddy-Daisy High School.

Former players from Soddy-Daisy and Red Bank, long-time rivals on the prep football scene, will play a fundraising game at Soddy-Daisy at 7:30 p.m. Gates will open at 6 p.m.

It’s another chance for the ex-players to enjoy the Friday night lights, to go back to their younger days when games between the Trojans and Lions were of the most spirited variety in the state.

Tickets are $10.

The second fundraiser will pit ex-players of Bradley Central and Cleveland and that game is set for April 25 at Bear Stadium in Cleveland. Again, the game will start at 7:30 p.m. and gates open 90 minutes earlier.

Both games are being promoted by Southeastern Football Rivals.
