About Corky Kell Classic


The 2020 Metro by T-Mobile Corky Kell Classic will hit the turf running in August and have its biggest field ever as the event moves to four days and 11 games. The Classic will kick off the high school football season with a doubleheader on Wednesday, August 19 at West Forsyth High School before moving to Dacula High School for two games on Thursday, August 20. The action then moves to Rome and Barron Stadium for the third straight year on Friday, August 23, for a star-powered pair of games. To close out the 29th edition of the Classic, a five-game marathon at the state-of-the-art Mercedes-Benz Stadium will take place on Saturday, August 24, including bringing in the first out-of-state team to play in the event as national power Hoover High School from Alabama will face off with south Georgia’s Lowndes, also making its first appearance in Corky.

The Classic launches the highly competitive high school football season in Georgia every August with partial proceeds benefiting the Kell Foundation to fund scholarships. Throughout the years, the games have included the top high school football players in Georgia. Marketed and operated by Score Atlanta and longtime sports personality I.J. Rosenberg, the ownership group includes former successful high school coaches Dave Hunter, Corky’s executive director, and Jim Dorsey.

Over the past six years, the Classic has reached more than 5.50 million television and internet viewers with a total game attendance of more than 310,000 fans. The event in 2019 had 35 sponsors including title sponsor Metro By-T-Mobile, whose involvement next season will be their 10th year as the lead sponsor. Last year, Corky signed a new television deal with CBS46/Peachtree TV and continues to be carried on radio on 929 The Game as well as digitally on the National High School Federation Network. The Classic event is considered the biggest high school football of its kind in the county.
