CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A final farewell.


Two recent graduates from Mason County will make one last appearance on the gridiron for their respective schools at the 57th annual West Virginia North-South Football Classic being held at 7 p.m. Saturday, June 21, at Laidley Field on the campus of the University of Charleston in Kanawha County.


Point Pleasant runningback/wide receiver Chase Walton and Wahama runningback Kane Roush were each chosen to the annual event, and both Mason County athletes will be part of the South Cardinals roster. The South Cardinals have defeated the North Bears the last four years and seven of the last eight contests overall while also claiming a 35-18-3 advantage alltime.


Walton finished his career as the Big Blacks alltime leader in receiving yards and touchdowns, and was also named the second team defensive captain on the Class AAA all-state list in 2013.


Roush led the entire state in rushing yards per attempt during his senior campaign with the White Falcons and was a first team selection as a punt returner on the Class A squad.


Both Walton and Roush played in at least one state championship game and made the playoffs all four years during their respective careers.


The North-South Classic started in 1934 and ran annually until 1955, then permanently returned after the 1976 season.


Lewis McClung of Greenbrier West will serve as head coach of the South Cardinals, while Bill Haddox of East Fairmont will lead the North Bears squad.
