ASCO football classic kicks off June 9th

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The ASCO Football Classic is bringing football back to the Hub City starting June 6th and kickoff for the game is set for 7pm on June 9th.

While graduated 2012 seniors get to put on the pads for one last time, the week is also set up to raise money for former injured football players.

"That's really what it's all about," said Shallowater head coach Kyle Maxfield. "Sometimes you get caught up in the rat race of coaching, and it's just a great feeling to be able to give back to those kids."

Tune in to KCBD Newschannel 11 on June 9th for highlights and reaction after the game.
