Harvey’s GM Classic kicks off Friday

The 27th  annual “Harvey’s GM Touchdown Classic’’ will take place tomorrow at Kenneth J. Dobson Stadium on the campus of Pulaski County High School.
Much of the interest will center around the matchups between Pulaski County and pre-season number one ranked Brookville of Lynchburg. The Bobcats of Radford will also tangle with the Bees.
It’s easy to understand why Brookville is rated so high. The Bees have three Division 1 prospects and the leader of Jeff Woody’s team is 6-6, 233 pound quarterback Logan Thomas.
Thomas is rated as the 24th best high school player in the nation and is being recruited by every major football power in the country. His top five schools are believed to be Virginia, Virginia Tech, Southern Cal, Ohio State, and Florida.
Thomas is rated as the number one tight end prospect in the land for college, but his tremendous athletic ability will be used under center for Brookville. In his first scrimmage action last week he ran for two touchdowns and passed for two more.
The Bees are loaded with the only potential stumbling block during the season possibly being defending state champion Amherst. Both are in the Seminole District. The other two highly regarded Brookville players are 6-4, 244 defensive end Zack McCray who has already committed to Virginia Tech, and 6-5, 270 tackle Devin Bolling.
“Well, we’ve got some questions that need to be answered,’’ says Pulaski County head coach Jack Turner. “I guess playing a team as highly regarded as Brookville will allow us to find some answers. I think our kids will be excited about playing a team that’s ranked number one in the state, and I’m sure Radford’s kids feel the same. Let’s roll the ball out there and see what we can get done. As far as Pulaski County’s football team is concerned, it is our intention to take the battle to them.’’
“Harvey’s GM Touhchdown Classic’’ will get underway at 4 p.m. Gates will open at 3 p.m. Admission is $6. There will be a full concessions operation, the teams will be in game dress, and except for no kickoffs, it’ll be just like Friday night.

At 4 p.m. Patrick Henry-Glade Spring plays Covington. At 5, Radford will battle Brookville and the Bobcats are coming off a four-game winning streak to finish last season. At 6, PH-Glade will face Tazewell. At 7, Pulaski County will take on Brookville. Radford will take the field for its second game at 8 against Covington, and the finale of the “Classic’’ will have Pulaski County locking horns with Tazewell at 9 p.m.

“Harvey’s GM Touchdown Classic’’ is the longest running event of its kind in Virginia.  Pulaski County, Radford and Brookville all had impressive scrimmages last week so expect lots of exciting action Friday evening in Dobson Stadium.
