PETERSON: NAIA GAME HAS BEEN A BOOST FOR THE COMMUNITY

Written by Matt Davis on October 24, 2012. Posted in Sports

Many Rome and Floyd County residents were disappointed (but maybe not surprised) at the news last week that the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) has announced that the contract to play its National Championship Game at Barron Stadium will end a couple of years early.  The current agreement between the NAIA and the Rome Host Committee will end after the 2013 game.

Rome has been the host of the championship game since 2008 and was awarded a contract in 2010 to host the game thru 2015.  Shorter University was a member of the NAIA at that time and has since moved to the NCAA, along with Berry College.

Shorter University Athletic Director Bill Peterson says that he’d rather focus on what the community has gained rather than lost in regards to the abbreviated contract with the NAIA.

The 2012 NAIA Football National Championship Game is set for Thursday, December 13th at 6:30 pm at Barron Stadium in Rome.  For more information, visit www.naianationalchampionship.com.
