GLEN ROSE – The Tigers made the call for help and the Glen Rose community answered in a big way. Thanks to 16 community sponsors, the 2016 Glen Rose Tigers’ adidas Texas 7v7 Championship fundraiser raised $1,225 to be used for travel, hotel and meals for the Tiger football team July 7-8 while at the state championships in College Station.
On behalf of Glen Rose Tiger football, the Reporter extends a special thank you to all of those who chose to sponsor the team’s third trip in four years and eighth out of the last nine to the state 7-on-7 championships.
The Tigers will begin play on Field 9 in Division II Pool N against Carthage at 2 p.m. Glen Rose will then square off with La Feria at 4 p.m., before wrapping up pool play against Midlothian Heritage at 6 p.m.
**Update (2:53 p.m.): All pool play games were pushed back one early by tournament coordinators early Thursday. Glen Rose will now play at 3, 5 and 7 p.m.
The top two teams from each pool will advance to the Championship bracket, while the bottom two will play in the Consolation. Both brackets are single elimination.
For results of each pool play or bracket play, follow along with the Reporter on Facebook or Travis Smith on Twitter, @Travis5mith.
