Bull City Grid Iron Classic is Back in 2012

Three years ago, Duke University and North Carolina Central University agreed to play a football game at Duke University's  Wallace Wade Stadium.  The idea was  for the two universities to create an opportunity to engage with each other and Durham in community service and sport.  Thus was born in 2009 the Bull City Gridiron Classic. 

The event included a pep rally in the old Durham Athletic Park, some Habitat for Humanity projects with students from the two  Universities, a picnic in Blue Devil Alley, a great football game, and an even better half time show. 

In 2012, the two schools have once again arranged their schedules to allow another game - and another Bull City Gridiron Classic scheduled for  September 15th. According to Casey Steinbacher, president of the Greater Durham Chamber of Commerce (GDCC), "Preparations for this year's game are starting much earlier in hopes of engaging more of Durham’s community partners in helping plan and carry out this exciting event."
