JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) —  The Marine Federal Credit Union, with the the help of the Jacksonville Onslow Sports Commission, is set to host the sixth annual MFCU Football Jamboree on Friday, August 16th.

16 teams are matched up and set to play at Northside High School for the event.

Prior to the jamboree, a media day was held to preview the event.

“This jamboree itself is great because we’re seeing some great competition that exposes your flaws,” said Dixon AD and assistant coach Brandon Ball. “When you face weaker teams you get by with things that are mistakes but when you face good teams like the ones we will be facing, you see what you have to get better at.”

At the conclusion of the panel-style meeting, coaches participated in a friendly, competitive wing-eating contest!
