Battle in the Valley

Celebrate the kick-off of the 2013 TVCC Cardinals’ football season by coming out for the tailgate and staying for one exciting game between the Trinity Valley Cardinals and the Iowa Western Reivers.
In summer 2012, Paul Benson, owner of Athens based business Virtual Communication Specialists, was visiting with Trinity Valley Community College head football coach Brad Smiley. “We were discussing doing something big to get the community even more involved with the Cardinal football team.”
A short time later, the opportunity to do so came to fruition.
In pre-season polling that year, T.V.C.C was ranked seventh, with the Iowa Western Community College Reivers ranked sixth.  The stars were aligning for the big event Benson and Smiley were looking for.
Battle in the Valley, sponsored by Virtual Communication Specialists was born.  The idea was to put a “bowl” game at the beginning or during a season to raise excitement over the Community Colleges’ teams.  Benson immediately began putting together a plan for the Reivers to travel to Athens to play.  The game was exciting and the Iowa Western Reivers dominated the 2012 season, becoming the National Junior College Athletic Association Champions.
