Friday, April 04, 2014 - by Special to

Former football players at Soddy-Daisy, Red Bank, Bradley Central and Cleveland are starting to sign up for alumni football games scheduled April 11 at Soddy-Daisy and April 25 at Bradley Central.

The players who have paid a fee to play in the two fundraising games are listed, so the rosters are not complete. Player fees will be accepted up to game day, so many names will be added later.

Tickets are now on sale for the Trojans-Lions game.

Cleveland High’s video production class will film the game at Bradley Central as part of a class project, according to Southeast Football Rivals, which is staging the two games.

The list of players that have registered for each school:

Soddy-Daisy – Brian Arnold, Chris Karr, Tyler Wolfford, Jonathan Crawley, Mike Collins, Danny Stone, Brandon Battles, John Hixson, Zach Wilson, Chris Stoker, Andy Fuller, Matt Zumbrun, Bryant Frank, Bubba Haney.
