E-mail statement from Daviess County Public Schools:
We regret to announce that the Apollo/Daviess County High School Alumni Football Game originally set for Saturday, Oct. 28, has been cancelled. Due to timing and logistics involved, we do not believe we can make the event as successful as it is should be for all involved at this time. DCPS has made this decision and while Alumni Football USA understands our reasoning, this is in no way reflective of Alumni Football USA’s commitment to sponsor the game. We certainly appreciate the support and excitement of those who had committed to playing or attending the Alumni Game!
We are considering rescheduling in the Spring or Fall of 2018 and we are looking forward to your support and participation as players and fans, once this is determined. For the alumni players that had signed up to play, we will obtain your e-mail address and inform you of future plans. Furthermore, we will work with Alumni Football USA to ensure you receive full reimbursement of any payment made for the Oct 28 game.
This game represents a great opportunity to renew relationships and demonstrate the values of school pride, teamwork, fair play and good sportsmanship that have always defined the Eagle and Panther teams. Please watch for future announcements regarding this event!
