Grace Community School is set to host the eighth annual Azalea Orthopedics & TSJH Tyler Football Classic August 29-31. Six area high schools will compete in the Classic, which kicks off the 2013 football season. All three games will be played at Grace's Clyde-Perkins Stadium. Each game will put a public school against a private school.
"It means a lot to us," said Grace quarterback Chandler Nutt. "People say the private schools are all the underdogs and everything. I feel like we can stack up against anyone we play. We have a history of beating them so we can keep it going."
Gorman will face Beckville in a rematch of last years 34 to 7 Crusaders win.
"Since we're TAPPS were looked down upon since we're a private school," said Gorman quarterback Tristan Saint. "But when we can stand up and show what we got and beat a public school, it's definitely something for us."
