Three UC Bears To Play in Save An Eye Game


Three Union City Bears To Play in Save An Eye Game

By Chris Lash Publisher

The 81st Save-An-Eye all-star football game is set for July 19 at 7 p.m. at McDowell’s Gus Anderson Field. The Save-An-Eye game is traditionally played at Veterans Stadium, but ongoing construction will prevent the field from being ready in time.

The game will also have a format change as Cathedral Prep joined the County team, and Fairview, Harbor Creek and Iroquois joined the Metro team.

Local Union City fans have an opportunity to see the Bears all time leading rusher one more time, as Gavin Henry will play for the county team along with his former teammates Myles Parker and Matt Long. They will play with state championship quarterback Regan Schleicher of Cathedral Prep.

The two teams got together for the first time on Monday for a media day photo shoot at the Gannon recreation center. The two teams will practice for two weeks at Iroquois and General McLane.
