high school showcase

COLUMBUS -- Alabama vs. Georgia High School Arena Showcase presented by Encore Rehabilitation and CTV BEAM is back for the first time since 2014. The first ever showcase game was played in 2013 and after a seven-year hiatus the high school arena showcase game will be returning to Hughston Clinic Field in the Columbus Civic Center, home of the Columbus Lions. The game will take place on April 23, 2021 and kickoff is tentatively set for 7 pm. Tickets are general admission ($15) and can be purchased on beginning April 1st. At halftime, there will be a Chattahoochee Scuba Football Toss for senior students for a chance to win a $500 scholarship. To register, fill out the form to the right.

This game is a chance for fans to see high school football in an arena setting consisting of players from the Chattahoochee Valley. Some of the high schools involved in the showcase include Shaw, Northside and Cavalry from Georgia and Smith Station, Loachapoka and Relltown in Alabama among others.

With the field only having the half the size of a traditional football field and the sideline boundaries made by walls surrounding the field, the best talent from Georgia and Alabama will be out of their element. Fans won’t want to miss this chance to see the best and brightest local high school talent compete in this border war for state supremacy.
