BULLARD, TX (KLTV) - Hoping to build momentum with their football program, Brook Hill decided it was time to host their own kickoff party. The school has announced they will host the Austin Bank-DeHaven Eye Clinic Football Classic beginning August 26th.
Six schools will play three games over three days. Five of those schools are from East Texas.
"With what we have here and the direction our head master wants us to take our football and all our athletic programs, it's a good chance for us to showcase what we have here as far as facilities go at Brook Hill," said Guard Head Coach Terry Pirtle.
The classic will begin Thursday, August 26th, when Shelbyville plays Troup. San Augustine will play Friday night against Colmesneil. Brook Hill and Lake Worth will cap off the weekend on Saturday. The same three match ups will be played again in 2011.
"We wanted to come play in the classic," said new Troup Head Coach Chuck Griffin. "A chance to play the first game in the state of Texas. We look forward to that, something for a new coaching staff to come in, for something to be exciting."
