The prep football team at Fork Union Military Academy will face off with Hermitage High School of Richmond, Virginia in a nationally-broadcast football game carried by the ESPN network on Saturday, August 25, 2012. The game will be hosted at Oscar C. Smith High School in Chesapeake, Virginia.
Last year, ESPN broadcast thirteen high school games on their channels.
Hermitage High School has one of the best players in the state in running back Derrick Green, who is weighing scholarship offers from at least two dozen college programs. Fork Union is led by nationally-ranked quarterback Christian Hackenburg who has committed to play next year for Penn State.
Plans are underway for this game and FUMA hopes to have a large contingent of staff, cadets, alumni, and friends on hand to cheer on our Blue Devils.
