The East Ridge Parks and Recreation Department has joined with the defending Southern Conference Champion Chattanooga Mocs Football team to make the evening of Sept. 27, a happening.
The Chattanooga Mocs and the East Ridge Scenic City Youth Football League players, coaches and fans are asking the public to join them for a 7 p.m. conference game with the Samford Bulldogs at Finley Stadium.
All tickets purchased through the East Ridge Parks and Recreation and its football teams and cheerleaders will be $10 each.
East Ridge Parks and Recreation Director Stump Martin said this is something that can be an annual event.
“This is going to be a fun evening,” Mr. Martin said. “You wouldn’t believe how many kids, as well as grown-ups, haven’t seen a college football game in person.”
Mr. Martin said that all East Ridge SCYFL players and cheerleaders will be selling tickets.
“We want a huge crowd to travel to Finley Stadium with us to cheer the Mocs on,” he said. “We already have people planning a big tailgating party before the game. This is a good opportunity for the East Ridge folks and their neighbors to do something fun together.”
The player or cheerleader who sells the most tickets will win a NCAA football signed by Chattanooga football coach Russ Huesman.
“If we sell enough tickets our players and cheerleaders are going on the field before the game and form a human tunnel for the Mocs to run through onto the field,” Mr. Martin said.
“Remember, the Mocs lost in overtime 17-14 to Samford in Birmingham, Ala. last season to cost Chattanooga the outright Southern Conference title. So, this is going to be a huge game.”
To purchase tickets call 423 490-0078, 423 867-6406 or better yet, see an East Ridge SCYFL cheerleader or football player.
