Recent Rickwood Classic Receives Great Media Coverage
One of our barometers of success each year for the Rickwood Classic is the amount of media coverage that the event receives. If that is a true indicator, then the May 28th Classic was one for the records (not to mention the 7,500-plus attendance number being the 3rd largest crowd), with local print and television media covering the event extensively. This level of exposure and p/r is of course invaluable, and contributes tremendously to our over-all success.
But if I had to choose this year the reporter that I most enjoyed speaking with, it would be hands-down, Savanah Eve Stewart, a young lady representing the Opelika – Auburn News for Kids. To read her take on the game and the park’s history, visit the link below. And on behalf of the Friends of Rickwood, it is comforting to know that the park’s future is safe in-the-hands of young fans like Miss Stewart.
