The soccer balls delivered by the One World Futbol Project are virtually indestructible. They never deflate, never puncture and don't require a pump.

One World Futbol inventor Tim Jahnigen was inspired to start the nonprofit organization after watching television news footage of young refugees in Darfur, a region of western Sudan, playing soccer using a ball of trash tied up with twine.

The teams from Edmond North and Edmond Santa Fe will be wearing special game shirts on Tuesday night with the One World Futbol Project logo.

Donations for the One World Futbol Project will be collected at the gate and in the stands. The girls game starts at 6 p.m. and the boys game will be at 8.

NFHS MAKES SWIMMING RULE CHANGE

The National Federation of State High School Associations' board of directors approved several rule changes that will take effect next season.

Swimmers in the breast stroke will now be permitted to execute a single butterfly kick on the start or turn at any time before the first breast stroke kick.

Also, the board approved changes that allow for the installation of track-style starting blocks with wedges, changed the procedure when an illegal suit is discovered and will now allow team personnel to use electronic devices to transmit or record information about a competitor's performance though not for communication with a swimmer.
