  • The 19th edition of the Battle Against Cystic Fibrosis West Virginia-Ohio All-Star Football Classic will be staged Friday night at Marietta's Don Drumm Stadium. The contest again features some of the Mid-Ohio Valley's top senior football players from both states.
    The game raises money for those suffering with CF. The kickoff for this year's event is set for 7 p.m.
    The Classic started in 1994 and a year later Jackson County schools became a part of the West Virginia selection pool.
    This year four players from Ravenswood High – Chad Burrows, Brandon Cunningham, Kyle Griffith and Dustin DeRito – will play for the West Virginia squads (read their features stories elsewhere on sports pages).
    West Virginia leads the overall series, 11-6.
