Gryphons make 2010 debut in HighSchoolOT.com event Saturday

RALEIGH - Rocky Mount will open its 2010 football season Saturday by participating in the 2nd Annual HighSchoolOT.com Jamboree. It will be held at Southeast Raleigh High School and this year the field of teams has been expanded to feature 10 teams in five games.
Nash Central will also be participating in the event.
Last season was the first year that Southeast Raleigh hosted the event. The format of the scrimmage will be a bit different.

Instead of teams getting the ball for 10 plays and rotating, the entire scrimmage is played like a normal game. Teams have four downs to get a first down, score, or punt the ball away.

The only real difference will be kicking plays. They will not be live as NCHSAA rules does not allow them in a preseason scrimmage.

Like last season's scrimmage, teams from Wake County will be placed up against teams from outside of the county. A running score will be kept throughout the night. The Wake County schools won the event last year.

This year, vendors will be at the event providing additional entertainment for spectators. HighSchoolOT.com, WRAL, and 99.9 FM The Fan ESPN Radio, along with VYPE High School Sports Magazine will be on hand to provide coverage of the event.

TGI Friday's is a sponsor of this year's event.

Here is the schedule for the 2nd Annual HighSchoolOT.com Jamboree:

3:00 p.m. - Garner vs. Rocky Mount
4:15 p.m. - Broughton vs. Clayton
5:30 p.m. - Middle Creek vs. Nash Central
