OKCPS athletics honoring veterans

Oklahoma City Public Schools will honor military veterans at all athletic contests for the week of Nov. 4-8. All veterans who show a valid military ID will be given free admission to events and will be recognized at halftime for their service to the country.

Veterans will be given free admission to the middle-school football championship games Tuesday night at Douglass, beginning with John Marshall vs. Northeast at 5:30 p.m. in the third-place game and the championship game between Millwood at Centennial at 7.

On Thursday, free admission will be available for the Altus vs. Capitol Hill game at Douglass, and the Centennial vs. John Marshall game at Star Spencer, both at 7 p.m.

Friday's 7 p.m. games include Crooked Oak vs. Northeast at Douglass, Del City vs. Southeast at Crooked Oak and Heritage Hall at Star Spencer.
