LIVINGSTON, La. – The jamboree football matchups scheduled to be held at the Albany High School football field on Thursday, Aug. 25, have been relocated to Walker High School to allow the games to be played on a turf surface.

“The heavy rains we have received for the past few weeks, along with the forecast of continued rain this week, have caused much concern about the level of damage that could be caused to our home field at this time,” Albany High School Principal Sammie Lacara said.

“While we know weather concerns are always a factor, we opted to move the three-game jamboree to Walker so we can ensure having our field in good condition for the start of our regular season,” Lacara said. “We are most appreciative of Walker High School Principal Jason St. Pierre and Coach Chad Mahaffey for making this option available to us.”

Lacara said the jamboree will feature three matchups, beginning at 5:30 p.m. with Independence vs. Varnado; at 6:45 p.m. with Springfield vs. Grace King; and at 8 p.m. with Albany vs. Sophie B. Wright.

The $8 gate admission is good for all three games.
