Bradley-Cleveland Alumni Football Game Set For Friday

Former Return To Relive Fierce Rivalry Of Their High School Days

Thursday, April 24, 2014 - by Special to Chattanoogan.com

The second of two high school alumni fund-raising football games in the area will be played Friday night at Bradley Central’s Bear Stadium.

Former players at Bradley will take on those from rival Cleveland.

Game time is 7:30 p.m. and admission is $10. Gates open a 6 p.m.

The first alumni game pitting ex-players from Soddy-Daisy and Red Bank was held on April 11.

The games are full contact, full speed and designed to raise funds for both participating teams. High school officials will ref the game.

Some participants may not run as fast as they once did and probably have put on a few pounds since their playing days, but they’re in it for a good cause.

Radio station 104.1 will broadcast the game. The Cleveland High video production class will be doing a full production of the game, just as they do weekly during the Blue Raiders regular games.

Naturally, the place became known as the “Pink Palace” but lest ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: This Library Comes Alive

I am pretty positive that I haven’t stepped foot in a library in the last 50 years. Between the ever-widening Internet, with all of its search engines and infinite resources, I have got about as much use for a library as I would if I read a book about a transgender person. I have neither the time or inclination. Be like trying to teach a pig to sing – the pig always get bored. ... (click for more)
