It’s game week for the 30th annual BB&T Football Jamboree. 

Tuesday, all 10 coaches from the schools took part in the luncheon. This year two new coaches joined the mix Russell Dove at South Columbus and Rocky Lewis at South Brunswick. 

"This is where you want to be, this is what you want to be part of. Once you are part of it you see how much it plays in the communities, for these schools, the scholarships and BB&T puts it on," said South Columbus head coach Russell Dove.

South Brunswick coach Rocky Lewis is no stranger to the Jamboree. The son of Clinton head coach Bob Lewis, Rocky has been watching the games for years and is honored to walk the same sidelines as other greats. 

"Being the son of a coach, I think of all the great coaches that have been in it. Coach Holley from Wallace, Tabor City and South Columbus. Then you have Scott Braswell, Joe Miller, Joey Price, and the list goes on," Lewis said.

The BB&T Jamboree kicks off Friday at 4:30 with the cheerleader showcases, football starts at 5:30.
