2016 Corky Kell Luncheon
About Corky Kell Classic
In 2016, the Classic will grow from seven to nine games with 18 teams participating. The Classic will open in Macon at Mercer University for two games, then move to McEachern High School for two more before the five games at the Georgia Dome. The Classic will move to the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium in 2017. Launched in 1992, the MetroPCS Corky Kell Classic is a Georgia high school football event and was the first event ever to be held at the Georgia Dome. The Classic kicks off the highly competitive high school football season in Georgia every August with partial proceeds benefiting the Kell Foundation to fund scholarships. Throughout the years the games have included top talent in both Georgia and across the nation. Marketed and operated by Score Atlanta and a group that includes former successful high school coaches Dave Hunter and Jim Dorsey, in the past four years the Classic has reached more than 3.25 million television and internet viewers with a total game attendance of more than 200,000 fans.
