Players still needed for alumni football game

Time is running out for players to sign up for the first-ever Halifax County High School Alumni Football Game, to be played Saturday, Aug. 17 at Tuck Dillard Memorial Stadium.

When contacted Wednesday, Halifax County High School Head Football Coach Mike Roark said 15 ex-Comets had signed up to play.

“We have to have bodies,” said Roark, and “you have to have 25 per team.

“We’re still looking for players.”

Alumni Football USA is helping put on the game and will provide all equipment for players.  The cost is $100 per player, and players may sign up by registering online at or by calling 866 u get hit.

The alumni football game is being staged as a fundraiser for the Halifax County High School football program.  Tickets for the game will be $10 each, and fans wishing to take advantage of VIP parking can do so for $10.

Halifax County High School will receive a percentage of the gate receipts, and fans will have an opportunity to purchase tickets in advance.

Fans are encouraged to purchase advance-sale tickets.

The two competing teams will be formed on the basis of the players’ graduation year.  Players who graduated from Halifax County High School in even-numbered years will comprise one team, with players that graduated from the school in even-numbered years comprising the other team.
