Former New Mexico Highlands University football coaches Carl Ferrill and John Levra will be hosting a Professional Football Coaches Charity Golf Tournament, a Highlands University Football and Chaffey (California) College Reunion along with a Legends of Football on the River Coaches Clinic on Friday, June 4, and Saturday, June 5, in Laughlin, Nev.
Ferrill is suggesting that participants show up on Thursday night, June 3. The Colorado Belle Hotel & Casino and the Edgewater Hotel and Casino are the host venues.
The money that will be raised in the golf tournament and football reunion will go to the Highlands football program, Ferrill said. The money raised in the coaches’ clinic will go to Mohave and River Valley High Schools in Fort Mohave and Bullhead City, Ariz.
Ferrill is a resident of Bullhead City and Laughlin, Nev.
“We’ve done pro football charity golf tournaments before, but never tied it with reunions or coaches clinics. This is bigger than we’ve ever done before,” said Ferrill.
The cost of the Pro Football Coaches Charity Golf Tournament is $225 per individual and includes a VIP party with food, two rounds of golf at the Desert Lakes Country Club and admittance to the Football on The River Coaches Clinic and a team picture. It is a five-person team plus a pro coach scramble format with first, second and third place prizes for each of the six players on that team.
The football reunions are open to all ex-Highlands and Chaffey College coaches and players which will take place at the Colorado Bell Hotel and Casino in Laughlin on Friday, June 4 and Saturday, June 5. The room rate for Thursday is $22. Friday’s room rate is $53 and $55 on Saturday.
The coaches’ clinic is scheduled for Friday, June 4, and Saturday, June 5, at the Colorado Belle and will feature former NFL coaching great Jim Fassell. The package for all high school and college coaches is $50 per coach or $200 for a staff of eight.
