McCoy Speaks at Oil Bowl Banquet

The 74th Oil Bowl banquet was Friday night at the MPEC in Wichita Falls.

The keynote speaker was Brad McCoy, the former Graham High School football coach and father of NFL Star Colt and UT Star (and former Graham Steer) Case McCoy.

He spoke to a large crowd of players, parents and interested Wichitans.

One of the players in attendance was Iowa Park's Lee Clubb, who was recently drafted in the Major League Baseball Draft and is considering signing with the Kansas City Royals instead of playing football on a scholarship to Colorado State.

Friday night Oil Bowl Chairman Gary Hill said the goal of the event is to leave a lasting impression on the players.

"This event brings a lot of people to Wichita Falls," said Chairman Hill.

"This is the oldest charity football game in the country. That gives us a lot of prestige, and for the coaches who come here, this is a great thing on their resume. And for the young men that are playing in the game, we try to make it a week that they will never forget."

The game itself will be Saturday night at 7:30 p.m. at Memorial Stadium.

Reserved seats will be $11, with general admission tickets available for $9.
