The annual Blue-White scrimmage has been all over from Oklahoma City, Newcastle, Choctaw, Moore, Bixby, Bethany, Yukon and Midwest City. It’s Edmond’s turn to get a crack at it. The Oklahoma City Thunder will host their annual Blue-White scrimmage on Sunday, Oct. 1 at Edmond North High School at 2 p.m.
If you’ve never been to a Blue-White scrimmage, here’s how it goes: The Thunder will hold a very loose version of practice. It’s really like warm up but they run a couple of drills. The Storm Chasers are out and about. Rumble is doing his thing. Outside of the school, they’ll hold a Thunder Alley for everyone. That’ll start about 11 a.m. They’ll have bouncy castle things. They’ll really be doing this for the kiddos.
After they run through the fake drills to make it seem like you’re REALLY at practice, they’ll hold an mini scrimmage that we’ll be able to see the Thunder in all of their glory for those in the arena.
“We are extremely proud to tip off our 10th season with this great community tradition, and we’re grateful to the Edmond North community for hosting us,” said Brian Byrnes, senior vice president of Sales and Marketing for the Thunder. “We’ve played the Blue and White Scrimmage in a different location every year to show our fans across Oklahoma how deeply we appreciate their support and how much we value the connection they feel with our team.”
Tickets will only be handed out by the Edmond North administration to the students via raffle. This is best to keep the tickets in the community and not getting out there on the open market, jacking up the prices as this is a free event for the local community. However, all Thunder Alley festivities will be open to the public.
