Craigmont vs. Douglass at the First Annual North Memphis Classic Football Tournament

Bands, entertainment, events, music, Sports


Because of a late-afternoon rehearsal (and the threat of rain), I decided not to go down to the Othar Turner Picnic at Gravel Springs near Senatobia, so when I saw that there was a high-school football classic going on at Crump Stadium in Midtown, I decided to go and check it out. I had missed the 3 PM game with Manassas, but when I arrived Douglass High School was getting blown out by Craigmont High. I had hoped to see Douglass’ band, but they sadly weren’t there. Craigmont however brought their band, and while their band didn’t perform at halftime, their drumline did.

Saturday night, the Douglass High School Athletic Association sponsored a blues concert at the Snack Bar on Chelsea, featuring Big Don Valentine with the Charles McDaniel Blues Band. The event was held out on the parking lot in front of the building, with plenty of barbecue and cold drinks. 6/16/12
