Football showcase changes name to Battle for Veterans

The Battle at the Capital football showcase extravaganza, held the last two seasons at Del Oro High School, is undergoing several changes.

The event is moving to a new headquarters in Roseville, acquiring a new name, new logo, and a new web-site address. It will now be called the Battle for Veterans to carry on its theme of raising funds for wounded veterans.

September's event featured several impressive games, including Lincoln of Stockton's 50-49 overtime win over then nationally ranked Pleasant Grove and Westlake's 30-27 overtime victory against Del Oro.

All four teams are currently state ranked by Cal-Hi Sports and still alive in their respective section playoffs. Westlake is undefeated and Del Oro and Pleasant Grove suffered their only losses of the season in that event.

Next year's event will be held over two weeks, Labor Day weekend at Del Oro, then the following weekend at Westlake High in Westlake Village.

Del Oro, Granite Bay, Westlake and Oaks Christian of Westlake Village have committed to play both weekends.

Other teams will be announced soon, according to organizers.
