Steel City Invitational to be televised
By Gary Lloyd
BIRMINGHAM — Clay-Chalkville could be getting some more TV time.
The hoops tournament is scheduled for Dec. 19-22 at Samford University.
The 16-team field includes Clay-Chalkville, Parker, Mountain Brook, Midfield, Hoover, Theodore, Grissom, Tuscaloosa County, Bibb County, Cullman, J.O. Johnson, Ramsay, Wenonah, Bessemer City, Fairfield and Faith Academy.
All participating teams will play at least once a day during the four-round tournament.
Matchups and game times will be posted at www.SteelCityHoops.com and communicated through social media in the fall.
Clay-Chalkville is in the process of finding a new head coach. Daniel Foy resigned from the position earlier this year after leading the Cougars to a 66-27 record over the past three seasons. A new coach is expected to be named this month.
Hewitt-Trussville played in the inaugural Steel City Invitational last year.
The Clay-Chalkville varsity football team will play Niceville (Fla.) on ESPNU on Saturday, Aug. 23 at 3 p.m.
