Admission is free for all who might want to watch this year’s swarm of Hornets take on a team consisting of White River alums, fans and fathers of kids on the current roster. The event is a fundraiser for the football program, as participants are asked to pay $20 to take the field and the Hornet booster club will be selling hamburgers.

The game will be played on the natural surface of historic Sheets Field in downtown Buckley.

Anyone interested in signing up to play can visit: hornets.football/tbclassic.
