Brunettes WIN the Blondes v Brunettes Football Game for Alzheimer’s
For it being the “First Annual” Blondes v Brunettes Football game for the Lubbock Alzheimer’s Association it was a HUGE success!
On Saturday, June 21st – around 2000 people came out to the Jones AT&T Stadium to watch girls play football! And an exciting game it was! Down to the last minutes!
Brunettes won by ONE point – the final score was 20-19!
Lubbock High School AD and Head Football Coach Jason Strunk coached the Brunettes while Lubbock High School Assistant Head Football Coach Neal Null coached the Blondes.
This BvB game was dedicated to the Dykes family in honor of the late Sharon Dykes (wife of Spike Dykes) who battled and lost her fight against Alzheimer’s in 2010.
