FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – A special tailgate promoting the upcoming College Football Playoff championship at Bishop Dwenger has been altered due to COVID-19 concerns.
During the high school football season, the Indiana Tailgate Tour is visiting various IHSAA football games, including Friday night’s tilt between North Side and Bishop Dwenger.
Friday’s stop at Bishop Dwenger will be abbreviated, according to a representative from Visit Indy. The group decided to move to an abbreviated tailgate tour stop after Bishop Dwenger shifted to an eLearning day on Friday. According to a screenshot obtained by WANE 15, Bishop Dwenger shifted to virtual learning due to cafeteria staff being in quarantine.
Rally towels will be handed out and checks will be presented to both participating schools during the North Side – Bishop Dwenger game on Friday. The 2022 Indianapolis Host Committee is awarding a $1,000 grant to each participating schools, which will go to teacher and classroom development. An additional $500 will be donated to each school’s athletic department.
