The Long Beach Poly football team is in Oregon for a marquee game tonight against national No. 2 Bishop Gorman, as the Jackrabbits and Gaels play at the Nike World HQ as part of the NFL Kickoff Classic. The Jackrabbits are fresh off a win over Hawaii Division 1 state champion Konawaena but will be heavily tested by a deep and talented BG squad.

“We’re looking forward to the game and we know we’ve got to play well in every phase,” said Poly football coach Stephen Barbee. “It’s a big game and a big event and our kids are grateful for the opportunity.”

The Jackrabbits will have close to their full roster available after the CIF-SS clearances of their starting defensive tackle and receiver, and star linebacker Dylan Williams will be available to play as well.

We’ll have live updates from the game and full coverage after.
