FOOTBALL FRIDAY: Ankeny Schools Ready For Battle

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Ankeny and Ankeny Centennial are moving back kickoff of their inaugural football matchup Friday night because of the heat – and that means more hype for the long-awaited game.

Ankeny won the state championship last year, but lost half its numbers to Ankeny Centennial.

The Ankeny Hawks represent the south, the Ankeny Centennial Jaguars the north.

Ankeny at Centennial is this week’s Football Friday Big Game.

Kickoff is at 8:00 p.m. and gates open at 6:00 p.m. The game is being held at Ankeny Stadium at 1302 North Ankeny Blvd.

Nearly 400 students will take part in the game, from players to band members, to cheerleaders.
