Cherokee’s Justin Schanbacher led the Chiefs to a magical run and a state championship in 2010. He’s hoping to do the same thing Saturday.
Schanbacher will be a part of the Gold team in the Gold-Green eight-man all-star football game Saturday night at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M.
Tickets will be available at the gate and are $6 for adults and $3 for students. Game time is 7 p.m. The Oklahoma Eight-Man Football Coaches Association also will give out $10,000 in scholarships for the athletes that are continuing their education.
