FRANKLINTON -- Keeping the spirit and memory of Wade Halford alive is the chief goal of the annual boys soccer showcase at Franklinton High School.
That event, known as the Wade Halford Jamboree, will be held this Saturday on the FHS campus.
Action will begin at 8:20 a.m. and end at 3:40 p.m. Admission is $5 per person, with proceeds going to the Wade Halford Scholarship Fund.
This year's field will feature Raleigh Charter, Sanderson, Corinth Holders, East Wake, Cardinal Gibbons, Hillsborough Orange, North Raleigh Christian Academy and Wake Forest -- along with the host Red Rams.
Those clubs will take part in 40-minute scrimmage sessions at three different fields.
Halford is regarded as one of Franklinton's all-time best -- and most team-oriented -- boys soccer players. He passed away tragically in 2011.
