Eighth annual Blake Stephens Foosball Tournament set June 22

Posted June 18, 2014

The eighth annual Blake Stephens Foosball Tournament will be June 22 at 2 p.m. at Hooligans in Pocatello.

The event, which raises scholarship money for student veterans attending Idaho State University, honors local Army soldier Sgt. Blake Stephens who was killed in Iraq in 2007 by a roadside bomb. Stephens often played foosball at the local establishment.

The Sgt. Blake Stephens Scholarship became the official scholarship of ISU’s Veterans Sanctuary program in 2010.

The tournament annually raises about $2,000, which is split into two awards. The recipients are announced each January.

No experience is necessary. The event features a double-elimination blind draw, numerous prizes, and beginner and advanced brackets. Registration is onsite.

Hooligans is located at 122 N. 3rd Ave. For more information, call 234-0213.
