This year’s First Security Kickoff Classic features eight high school football teams facing off at War Memorial over two days. It’s billed as “a clash between traditional Central Arkansas rivals,” and features seven of the teams that played in last year’s games.
Things get started Monday at 5 p.m., when Central Arkansas Christian takes on Stuttgart. That game will be “a great early season 4A matchup,” said Jim Harris, editor of ArkansasSports360.com, which is one of the sponsors of the event. Next up, Hot Springs Lakeside goes up against Little Rock Christian at 7:30 p.m., in what will likely be a high-scoring, wide-open game, Harris said.
On Tuesday, Arkadelphia and Benton face off in the 5 p.m. timeslot, while archrivals Cabot and Jacksonville close things out starting at 7:30 p.m.
You can get tickets starting at 4 p.m. on game days at the stadium.
