The teams and cheerleaders will be at Wimer Stadium from 1 to 9 p.m. with fundraising jars. Money collected will go the Jeffries family to offset medical costs for Dylan Jeffries, who passed away Sunday night after collapsing during a game on Sept. 27.

The Elkins football squads will play games throughout the day, starting with the flag teams at 1 p.m. The Pee Wee and Midget contests against Barbour County will start at 5 p.m. and 7 p.m., respectively.

Individuals interested in making a donation and unable to do so on Saturday, can send checks made out to Elkins Youth Football, in care of Jim Poyner, 15 Locust St., Elkins?WV 26241.
