44th Annual Snapperbowl Classic Takes Over Pete Edwards Field

Posted: Updated:

The 44th Annual Snapperbowl Classic wrapped up at Pete Edwards Field on Saturday. The double elimination tournament takes place every Thanksgiving weekend for three days. There were 23 teams in this year's tourney, from as far away as Tennessee and Missouri.

Assistant Tournament Director Kenny Creel said thanks to Superstorm Sandy, several northern teams couldn't make the trip. He says the teams that did make it, love coming down to Bay County.

"You're not playing in the snow!" Creel laughs. "You finally get down here towards the winter time and fall and get to play out here and get a sunburn at the same time. There's nothing better then playing football in the morning or at night and you get to spend all day at the beach, arcades and all down here, things these people don't have back where they're from."
