Carrollton, GA - On Saturday, August 25, University Stadium will become the site of the First Annual West Georgia Football Classic, the regular season kickoff of high school football action in the West Georgia area.

The first game of the day will take place at 4 p.m. and will feature Bremen and Alexander in a battle between AA and AAAA opponents. The nightcap will begin at 8 p.m. and features Haralson County against Central.

"We are excited to be able to host this event in University Stadium," said UWG athletic director Daryl Dickey. "We look forward to being able to serve the local community in this way."

The formation of the West Georgia Football Classic was a unified effort among coaches Ricky Tolleson of Bremen, Alan Lane of Haralson County, Grant Chesnut of Central and Matt Combs of Alexander. This group worked diligently to secure the inaugural event.

"This series allows these communities to experience their season opener in a collegiate style atmosphere," UWG Senior Associate Athletic Director Eddie Duffey said. "We couldn't be happier the way this has turned out."

All tickets for the event are general admission and can be purchased from each of the participating schools involved at a cost of $10 per ticket.
