The second annual Friends of Joe Watkins Memorial Flag Football Tournament will be Dec. 15 at James Brown Park in Hinesville.
Funds from the tournament support scholarships presented to local high-school graduates who played baseball or softball and are headed to college.
Last year, Antonio Smith and Morgan Crowley earned the $1,000 scholarships.
Proceeds from this year’s tournament also will be donated to the Beasley Family Fund.
The Ellabell family lost two children in a house fire in early November.
The Joe Watkins Memorial Scholarship Fund is in memory of the Liberty County High School graduate who died as a result of a car accident during the Thanksgiving holiday last year. He was attending Georgia Southern University on a baseball scholarship and had played ball on travel teams across the state for years.
Teams of six players can register by calling Levi Deese at 912-480-7528. For more information, call Pat Watkins at 912-321-9803.
