Foosball tournament to benefit Sgt. Stephens ISU scholarship fund

Posted June 1, 2009

An Army Sgt. Blake Stephens memorial foosball tournament will held Sunday, June 14, at Hooligans Pub at 122 North Third Ave. in Pocatello.

Stephens, 25, of Pocatello, died May 8, 2007, in Salman Pak, Iraq, of wounds suffered when an improvised explosive device detonated near his vehicle. All proceeds from the tournament will be donated to the Stephens scholarship fund set up at the Idaho State University Foundation.

Entry fees are $30 per team. There will be two divisions in the double-elimination tournament. The first 14 teams will receive T-shirts. For those who want to support this cause, but don’t play foosball, there is a noncompetitive division.
