  • Mary Kline Classic Rosters Released

    By ALEX KLINE

    The Mary Kline Classic is an elite 28-man game featuring high school talent from all over the Mid-Atlantic region.

    The Mary Kline Classic is a charitable event to raise money to fight cancer. All of the money from the event will be donated to the American Cancer Society and the National Brain Tumor Foundation.

    The event is being held in loving memory of my late Mother. When I was five years old my Mother was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. While doctors gave her only 18 months to live, she kept fighting for five years as a result of the excellent medical care and the love and support of both me and my father. Although my Mom has been gone for six years she is still with me in my heart.

    The Mary Kline Classic is my way of honoring my brave and wonderful Mom who spent all of her time with me for as long as she could. 

    The event will take place on Saturday May 28th at The Pennington School in Pennington, New Jersey. Admission is $10 at the door and donations are encouraged.
