COLUMBUS –State Rep. Jay Edwards (R-Nelsonville) yesterday announced that he bought student playoff tickets from thirteen local Appalachian Schools to be distributed to students free of cost.

This move comes on the heels of Edwards’ recently introduced bill to address steep ticket price increases for students and the difficulty students face when attempting to purchase tickets at games using cash.

Edwards bought 100 student football playoff tickets from each school listed below:

  • Trimble
  • Nelsonville-York
  • Eastern (Reedsville)
  • Fort Frye
  • Waterford
  • Steubenville
  • St. Clairsville
  • Barnesville
  • Monroe Central
  • River (Hannibal)
  • Harrison Central
  • Caldwell

He also bought 50 student volleyball playoff tickets from each school listed below:

  • Nelsonville-York
  • Waterford
  • Marietta 

“High school sports are community-building events,” said Edwards. “I wish I could do more but hope these tickets will help pack the stadiums and gyms this weekend. These games are some of the best memories these kids will ever have.”

The athletic director and/or superintendent of each school will be tasked with distributing the tickets.
