The Entringer Classic is in remembrance of Mike Entringer, who passed away in 1990. He was both a basketball and football official. The funds raised from these Classics are used to reward student-athletes with scholarships.
There are 20 participating area schools that take part. The funds to offer these scholarships are raised from these communities collecting advertisements and sponsorships that are presented in the classic program. Also, a silent auction, raffle, hoop shoot, along with other miscellaneous acts help provide the scholarships.
In 2022, 52 were awarded at $1000 each. A total of 1165 student-athletes have been awarded with a scholarship, totaling $1,023,000 in total scholarships over the years.
