The Annual Sweet Potato Classic is a great chance for State High alumni to get together at Memorial Field for everyone’s favorite day-after-Thanksgiving touch football tournament!

Join your graduating class’s team, or just bring your family to watch. The tournament is free to the community, but donations are appreciated. The money raised will be used to support the next phase of the Memorial Field renovation project. We hope you’ll join your SCASD family for one of our favorite traditions!

There are many things that separate our Thanksgiving football from the rest, first and foremost among them being the over $25,000 in donations to amazing causes that the State High Sweet Potato Classic has generated through contributions from participants and others in the community. We look to continue this tradition in 2016 and will be following up with information on the plan for this year’s donation.
