On Saturday, September 30, at 7 pm, cross-town rivals Santa Clarita Christian School and Trinity Classical Academy will meet for the third annual Faith Bowl at Cougar Stadium, College of the Canyons. “This is not only the biggest game of the season but according to the local news it is the biggest football event of the valley,” described SCCS Administrator Kirk Huckabone. “What a great time to not only cheer on our team but also be a testimony to the Santa Clarita Valley of two Christian schools glorifying Christ in the midst of a competition.”
Santa Clarita Christian School has defeated Trinity Classical Academy and won the coveted Faith Bowl trophy two years in a row. "We are excited about the Faith Bowl,” commented Athletics Director Josh Kristoff. “In our program, we instill 'one game at a time' mentality but it goes without saying that this one means a little bit more. Any time you have the opportunity to play against a crosstown rival, it’s always fun. Trinity is a talented program and we expect a very tight battle.”
Both schools, along with huge support from local churches and businesses, make this event something the whole valley looks forward to. Even more so this year, as half-time will consist of a field goal Hurricane Relief fundraiser, to benefit the Children’s Hunger Fund. Additionally, Domino's Pizza will be matching the funds raised during half-time. With the recent devastation that has affected communities nationwide, both schools found this as an opportunity to serve those in need. “Ultimately, this is an opportunity for two schools to come together to honor Christ through the game of football and that is what truly excites me." Josh added.
During Saturday’s game, Faith Bowl sponsor Firehouse subs will be on hand to deliver delicious game time grub. There will be MVP awards handed out, along with the presentation of the SCCS dominated Faith Bowl trophy. Pre-sale tickets are on sale now: $2/student; $5/adult; $20/family.
