alumni football games beginning

Ever dreamed of playing just one more football game? This is it.

Alumni Football USA is currently assembling teams of past high school football players to play one more full contact game against their old rivals this September - Banks vs. Astoria, Hillsboro vs. Glencoe, Forest Grove vs. McMinnville, Gaston vs. Vernonia, and many more.

Alumni Football organizes full contact games with complete high school rules, and the group will provide players with everything they need to play - field, full equipment, officials, announcers, emergency personnel and video personnel.

Only the first 40 guys on each team will get to play. All games in Oregon will take place in September. Game times and locations are yet to be determined.

To sign up, go to or contact Albert Ettedgui at 888-562-0622.
