Sabers to take part in special "Pride Scrimmage"

By Ross Eberhart
Sports editor

Fans of the Central boys basketball team will have an opportunity to catch a sneak peek of this year's Sabers squad, while also helping a good cause during a special game the day after Thanksgiving.

Central will travel to Davenport West on Friday, Nov. 23 to take on the Falcons in a "Pride Scrimmage" as part of the Iowa Hall of Pride's new community service initiative - the Iowa Hall of Pride Challenge.

The Saber sophomores will kick things off at 5 p.m. with the varsity contest following. The scrimmage will have the appearance of a real game, but will not count to either team's record.

All proceeds from the Pride Scrimmage will go directly to the service activities of the two teams. Davenport West will raise money for the Reece Morgan Youth Basketball League, while the Sabers will be raising money for the DeWitt Referral Center.

In addition to the money raised at the scrimmage, Saber players will also visit local neighborhoods looking for contributions, and the Central basketball program will also be asking for donations at one of their upcoming home games.

"Our goal is to raise money and goods that can be donated to the referral center to help families in the surrounding area as we enter the holiday season," Central head coach Jeff Frick said.
