Time change announced for Saturday night scrimmage

In a tradition of helping others, the Brady and Early High School football teams will be participating in a scrimmage Saturday, Aug. 18, beginning at 6 p.m. at Bulldog Stadium. A donation table will be set up near the gate with all proceeds from the event being donated to the Texas High School Coaches Association (THSCA) Benevolence Fund. Known as “Our Day to Shine,” the statewide effort involves THSCA participation from more than 125 schools. The fund was established by the THSCA board of directors to assist athletes and coaches with special needs or hardships. To date, 130 schools have participated in “Our Day to Shine” and have raised over $45,000. Of those funds raised, THSCA has paid $34,000 to athletes and coaches with special needs, as well as a sizable donation to the Red Cross Hurricane Relief Fund. Originally planned to begin at 5 p.m., the freshmen and junior varsity teams will now square off simultaneously at opposite ends of the field, beginning at 6 p.m. That match-up will be followed by the varsity teams beginning around 8 p.m.
