The Mid-Continent Campus sits just three miles from Graves County High School, and the Cougars will have varsity athletes from all six of their sports serving at the game in various roles. Mid-Continent athletes will be in their game jerseys at the event on Sept. 14 as they help in various capacities at the game.
