WILMINGTON, NC (BB&T JAMBOREE RELEASE) -- The 28th annual BB&T Football Jamboree will be held Aug. 15 at Legion Stadium in Wilmington. The prep scrimmage is a fundraiser for 10 southeastern North Carolina high schools and student scholarships. BB&T would like to welcome North Brunswick high school who will be joining the Jamboree for the first time.
The jamboree begins at 5 p.m. with a cheerleading showcase featuring squads from New Hanover, E.A. Laney, John T. Hoggard, West Brunswick, Whiteville, Wallace-Rose Hill, South Columbus, South Brunswick, North Brunswick and Ashley high schools.
Scrimmages begin at 6 p.m. The match-ups in order are: Ashley vs. Wallace-Rose; Hill; Hoggard vs. South Brunswick; West Brunswick vs. North Brunswick; New Hanover vs. South Columbus and Laney vs. Whiteville. Each game consists of two 12-minute periods.
“This annual event highlights the excitement and anticipation for a run at conference titles and state playoffs for the 10 area high schools,” said BB&T’s Garrett Adams, jamboree co-chairman. “It is one of the most exciting high school events in southeastern North Carolina with a playoff atmosphere to help kick-off the season.”
Proceeds from last year’s event totaled $41,368, enough to fund 20 $1,000 scholarships (two per school). In addition, participating schools received about $2,000 each for their general operating budgets.
Since its inception in 1989, approximately $1,105,076 have been raised for southeastern North Carolina high schools, and included in that amount, 526 student scholarships totaling $512,000 have been awarded.
Advance tickets are $4 and available at all BB&T branches in Whiteville, Wilmington, Wallace, Rose Hill, Shallotte, Southport, Tabor City and Leland. Tickets are $6 at the gate.

The BB&T Football Jamboree Scholarship Committee also allows each school to name the scholarships in honor of one of its supporters – living or deceased – who either served on the school staff or in the administrative system. The initial recognition is for a five-year period. After that period, each school can honor another individual. Schools select individuals who have inspired student athletes over the years through their leadership and teaching qualities.
10 High School football teams from Southeastern North Carolina participate in this annual scrimmage game to kick off the school year. Money raised from the event funds scholarships for local students to attend college, and supports the general fund at each participating school. In the past 27 years, the event has raised $1,105,076 with over 520 local students receiving scholarships.
Participating schools include: New Hanover, Laney, Hoggard, Ashley, South Brunswick, West Brunswick, Whiteville, Wallace-Rose Hill, South Columbus, and North Brunswick (New for 2014).

WILMINGTON, NC (HAMMERHEADS) -- Wilmington Hammerheads FC announced today the release of two players, Mickael Oliveira and Michael Calderon, from their current 2014 USL PRO roster. Calderon was released from his contract due to an injury sustained at the beginning of the season. Oliveira was released due to team violations.
The Hammerheads respectfully appreciate the contributed efforts put forth by each player this season.
Wilmington Hammerheads FC is back on their home pitch at Legion Stadium on Friday, July 25 at 7:30 p.m. ET as they host Arizona United SC. The Hammerheads will then hit the road to take on inner-state rival the Charlotte Eagles on Saturday, July 26 at 7:00 p.m. ET at Queens Sports Complex.
The Hammerheads tallied four points in the league standings last weekend during their doubleheader in Harrisburg and Rochester.

Hammerheads goalkeeper Quillan Roberts recorded back-to-back shutouts earning him USL PRO Player of the Week recognition.
Friday's match will be the first and only meeting between Wilmington and Arizona during the regular season. Arizona is entering this weekend's matchup following a 3-0 victory over the Orange County Blues after Matt Kassel, Long Tan and Kadeem Dacres all found the back of the net on their home turf.
Following Friday's match at Legion Stadium, the Hammerheads will travel a short distance west to take on the Charlotte Eagles for the third time this season.
