AUGUSTA, Ga. (WJBF) – With Border Bowl not possible this year, WJBF-TV recognized Team Georgia and Team South Carolina with a 30-minute television special on the eve of what would have been game day.

In late December the difficult decision was made to cancel this year’s CSRA high school senior all-star game after the latest consultation with medical experts. Weeks of planning and preparation were already underway, including naming the two head coaches and selecting the 42 seniors to make up the rosters of each team.

Each January Border Bowl brings together the top high school football players in our part of Georgia against the top seniors from our part of South Carolina. It is a joint venture between WJBF NewsChannel 6 and the Augusta Chronicle, with proceeds benefitting the Ronald McDonald House of Augusta.

During Friday night’s broadcast, it was announced that a donation will still be made to the Ronald McDonald House at a later date despite this year’s game being cancelled.
