The second annual Indiana High School Football Playoff Prayer Event will be held at Northview Christian Church in Carmel on Thursday night.
All Indiana high school football players and their fathers are invited to attend the event, which attracted a crowd of 500 last year, representing 15 schools. More than 2,000 are expected this year, event producer Todd Melloh said.
Clayton Jennings, an evangelist and author who was raised in Central Indiana, will serve as the guest speaker. Colts’ tight end Dwayne Allen and former Colts’ punter Hunter Smith will help emcee the event. The team with the most players present will receive a Tony Dungy autographed football.
All players are encouraged to wear their jerseys. The event begins at 7 p.m.
