Football Benefits Camden Students; Edward Waters, Allen University in Bunche Classic

KINGSLAND -- Football fans attending tomorrow's game at Camden County High School won't be cheering for their No. 1-ranked Wildcats -- they're not the team playing at Chris Gilman Stadium.

But there is a big game scheduled that is expected to draw as many as 10,000 people and feature four former Camden High football players. The Edward Waters College Tigers will face the Allen University Yellow Jackets from Columbia, S.C., in the second annual Ralph J. Bunche Football Classic.

The game, named in honor of the first African-American educator to win the Nobel Prize for education, is a fund-raiser to create scholarships for Camden County students, said Henry Smith, assistant athletic director at Edward Waters. Last year's event raised enough money to provide seven scholarships, Smith said.

"We're trying to do some things that are community-oriented," Smith said. "We want to be diverse in our community efforts."

He said another reason college officials decided to hold a game at Camden High is because of the game's namesake. Bunche started a trade school that later became an all-black high school in the county, Smith said.

Alumni from Ralph Bunche High School and the Camden County Black Business Association worked together to convince college officials to play a game at Camden High each year. One of the major selling points was the stadium itself, with a capacity to hold 10,000 fans, said L.J. Williams, president of the Camden County Black Business Association.

"This is unlike any high school stadium in Georgia," Williams said.

Kingsland Mayor Kenneth Smith said many people were surprised when the announcement was made that Edward Waters would play an annual game in the county.
