Harold Morrow, a 10-year NFL veteran and former Auburn University star, and Brent Hubbert, head football coach of the Maplesville Red Devils, will once again host the annual Kickoff Classic in Maplesville.

The event will take place on Saturday, Aug. 4 from 9 a.m. to noon CDT at Maplesville High School, located at 1256 Alabama Highway 139 in Maplesville.

During this free event, kids aged 5-18 will learn new skills, with in-depth instruction and demonstrations from an experienced and knowledgeable coaching staff, including Morrow and Hubbert as well as Fred Smith, a former defensive back at Auburn; Brandon Morrow, a former fullback at Auburn; and Reid McMillon, an All-American player and former Auburn fullback.

Kids will be grouped by age, position, ability and experience to allow coaches to progressively teach basic and advanced techniques to the best benefit of each group.

“As someone born and raised in Maplesville, this local community has made me who I am today,” Morrow said. “Each year, I look forward to partnering with Brent on this event, to give back to the community and to create some great football memories. I look forward to seeing the Maplesville community, and all surrounding communities, at the upcoming football camp.”
