About Corky Kell Classic


The 2017 MetroPCS Corky Kell Classic marks the second year of the event’s three-day, nine-game lineup. The Corky Kell Classic will kick off the high school football season on Thursday, August 17 with a double-header at Mercer’s Five Star Stadium. Friday and Saturday’s games will likely make history as the first games ever played in the newly transformed Georgia State Stadium (formerly Turner Field). The Classic kicks off 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 top talent in both Georgia and across the nation. Marketed and operated by Score Atlanta and a group that includes former successful high school coaches Dave Hunter and Jim Dorsey, in the past four years the Classic has reached more than 3.25 million television and internet viewers with a total game attendance of more than 200,000 fans.
