PHENIX CITY, AL (WTVM) – The annual White Water Classic football game is happening this weekend and officials kicking off the festivities with a press conference Wednesday at the Martin-Idle Hour Community Center in Phenix City.

Mayor Eddie Lowe along with other city officials were on hand for the press conference.

The head coaches spoke about what they need to do to win this year's classic.

"It's a very important game for them because this will be their first conference game. Somehow, we have to try and match their intensity,” said Willie Slater, Tuskegee Head Football Coach.

"We are just focused on getting our guys better. If we can develop confidence in our practice that will translate to the game,” said Gabe Giardina, Albany State Head Football Coach.
