Sheldon Iowa — On August 17th the Orab Football Program would like to host an alumni showcase for former players and “Friends of the Orabs”—Non-Alumni who would like to participate in the evenings activities. This is an opportunity to get out there and play again on Orab Field in a little 7 on 7 football game. The format details will be ironed out once the amount of interest is determined. Initially, the thought is a “mock” 2 quarter game with a 15 min running clock for each division to showcase their talents. Two divisions will be able to play at a time.
