The area’s best senior football players have been selected for the inaugural Border Bowl.
Players like Strom Thurmond’s dual threat quarterback Jauveer Hammond and Lincoln County running back Mike McIntire were among those selected for the South Carolina and Georgia teams.
The seniors-only game will be played at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 11, at Laney. It will be televised live by WJBF-News Channel 6 in partnership with The Augusta Chronicle.
The two 36-member team rosters were filled up by coaching nominations, which were received by South Carolina coach Dan Pippin and Georgia coach Jarrett Troxler and the Border Bowl committee.
Teams are expected to begin practicing on or after Dec. 27.
Proceeds from this year’s game will go to Ronald McDonald House.
