For those wanting to relive the glory days, or anybody who wants to watch others relive the glory days,  Saturday is a chance to do exactly that. 

The second annual alumni football game between Covington and Brighton high schools will be held at 7 p.m. at Brighton High School. 

Southeastern Rivals and McDivitt Motors are sponsoring the event. 

Last year's game at CHS, which was won by Covington 8-6, drew approximately 1,500 people. 

A portion of the proceeds go to both football programs. 

Tickets, which are $10, are available at Covington and Brighton high schools. Children five and under are admitted for free. Tickets will also be for sale at the gate. 

A portion of the money raised goes to football teams' booster clubs. 

“First off all, it's a fundraiser,” said Southeastern Rivals' Tripp Shaw, one of the organizers of the event. “We want to make sure the schools have a good experience while making some money. Also, it creates a buzz around the program and helps bring back alumni. It's a way to give back to the school.”
