Cost of admission will be $6 for adults and $4 for students.
The Team “B”elieve Committee states that “with the help of both NCC and CovCath and their football programs, we are excited to rally the support of both of these tremendous school communities that are very dear to the Eviston family. We thank you all in advance for your support of Team “B”elieve and we appreciate you standing up with us as we help “B” fight this terrible disease.”
Brian Eviston, a 1996 graduate of NewCath, is the brother of former NCC head football coach Eddie Eviston ’97. Eddie is the head football coach at Covington Catholic.
