The Waxahachie police and fire chiefs have teamed up for a friendly battle – all in support of the children served through Big Brothers Big Sisters in Ellis County.

Police Chief Chuck Edge and Fire Chief David Hudgins will compete Saturday, Jan. 24, at Ennis All Star Bowl in the Bowl For Kids’ Sake fundraiser. The department with the highest bowling score and or the most dollars raised will be crowned the winners and will receive a traveling trophy.

“I think whoever comes in second should treat the winner to this year’s Baylor and A&M football game,” said Hudgins, making references to the colleges they attended: Hudgins went to Baylor and Edge to Texas A&M.  

“Sounds good to me,” said Edge, agreeing to the friendly wager.

All of the dollars raised
