Allstate Sugar Bowl Prep Football Classic
The Mercedes-Benz Superdome and the Allstate Sugar Bowl will host the second annual Allstate Sugar Bowl Prep Classic on Friday, Sept. 7 in the Superdome. This year’s high school football doubleheader will feature John Curtis Christian School from River Ridge, La., against Plant (Fla.) High School and St. Paul’s High School from Covington, La., against Lincoln (Tallahassee, Fla.) High School.
"The Sugar Bowl Committee has demonstrated a strong commitment to high school football over the years, and this sponsorship serves to further showcase that tradition," said Allstate Sugar Bowl CEO Paul Hoolahan. "We are proud to play a part in this event, and we look forward to the possibility of building on that support in the years ahead."
The Sugar Bowl Committee continues to be very active in the New Orleans community by holding fast to its mission of sponsoring and promoting amateur sporting events which foster revenue and spark economic growth for the city and the state. This year the Bowl will support 23 events in sports such as volleyball, basketball, golf, lacrosse, sailing, track and field, soccer and tennis, as well as football. In addition, the Allstate Sugar Bowl was a key part of the local organizing committee for the 2012 NCAA Men’s Final Four and is playing a key role in the hosting of the 2013 NCAA Women’s Final Four. It also sponsors the local chapter of the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame as well as the Greater New Orleans Sports Hall of Fame.
