American State Bank has joined with the Glen Rose Lions Club to fund a $1,000 scholarship and to sponsor the club's annual Basketball Playoff Preview. 

In preparation for the district playoffs, the Glen Rose Lions Club and ASB will host two practice rounds.

The round for the girls teams will take place this Saturday at 11 a.m. in the new Tiger Arena.

The boys teams will play next Saturday, Feb. 17, at 11 a.m. in the new arena.

"We're very pleased to be associated with this and glad to be a sponsor and have it go toward a good cause," said E.K. Hufstedler, president of the Metroplex Division of ASB.

Maurice English of the Glen Rose Lions Club accepted the check for the scholarship to be presented at the high school's annual Senior Recognition Night.
