Former UGA and NFL running back Robert Edwards needed a little help from his friends.
Champ Bailey, Hines Ward and Jon Stinchcomb (member of the reigning Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints) are among the former UGA and NFL standouts scheduled to participate in the celebrity basketball game at 7 p.m. Friday at Arlington’s gym. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students, with the doors opening at 6. Other celebrity team members expected to play include D.J. Shockley, Boss Bailey, Teresa Edwards and Chamique Holdsclaw, among others.
Autographed jerseys will be raffled at halftime. The event is being held to raise money for Arlington’s football program.
“The football field needs repairing,” Edwards told the AJC. “It needs some new sod put in. It needs a dome in the middle so it doesn’t hold the water.”
