SAVE THE DATE: 2nd Annual Coach Larry Ginsburg ATF Classic 

7 on 7 Tournament Set for June 27, 2020  at Rowan University 

GLASSBORO, NJ – The Adam Taliaferro Foundation is pleased to announce the Second Annual Coach Larry Ginsburg ATF Classic, an exciting 7 on 7 football tournament featuring high school teams in the tri-state area, will be held June 27, 2020 at Rowan University’s Richard Wackar Football Stadium.

The Coach Larry Ginsburg ATF Classic, a 7 on 7 touch football tournament, is open to all schools in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware. The Classic is named in honor of former Eastern Regional High football skipper Larry Ginsburg, Adam’s high school coach and a founding board member of the ATF. 

Teams will compete on two different fields in pool play contests in opening rounds followed by semifinals and championship competition rounds. In 2019, Camden High School captured the Inaugural Classic with a triumph in the championship contest vs. Cherry Hill West. 

The Classic will feature a sports festival atmosphere with athletic competition along with vendor tables open to the general public.
