As part of the scrimmage, ex-Buckeye football players will be playing against pee-wee football players from the local area. Cheerleaders from Morehead State University will also be holding a clinic for young girls who are interested in participating as well. Volunteers from Valley and Portsmouth, among other school districts, will also be participating. There will be a dinner at Temple Baptist Church following the event, which is within a stone’s throw from the complex.

The event is held to raise money for Steven’s Power Packs, which are weekend food packs that are given to kids during the school year across 19 different schools.
