Change In 2008 Champions Classic

The lineup for the 2008 Champions Classic that is held in Abilene has changed.   The original schedule had Abilene playing Glades Central of Belle Glade Florida and Archbishop Riordan of San Franciscso playing Abilene Cooper.   The Florida and California schools were not able to get sponserships to cover the teams travel expenses so they were forced to cancel.

Two Fort Worth schools will step in to play in the 3 day classic that is sponsored by the Sports Alliance Committee of the Abilene Convention and Visitors Bureau.   This event raises scholarship money for students at Abilene, Abilene Christian, Abilene Cooper and Abilene Wylie.

The revised schedule is :

August 28th -- Odessa Permian vs. Duncanville

August 29th -- Abilene vs. Fort Worth Dunbar

August 30th -- Abilene Cooper vs. Fort Worth Wyatt

All games will be played at Abilene Shotwell Stadium for this 4th year event.
