The second annual Bear River vs. Nevada Union Alumni Football Game has been scheduled to kick off at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 28 at Bear River High School

The event, which was held for the first time last December – and won by Bear River, 16-13 – will serve as an annual fund-raising event for both high schools. Tickets are $5.

In the meantime, however, both teams are still looking for players to line up for the local squads. To register to play, Nevada Union players should call Troy Spangler at (530) 470-0773 or (916) 806-7600, while Bear River prospects should call Mo Barrios at (530) 305-5363.
