Sun Prairie football players huddle up after their 49-17 win over Madison West in a WIAA Division 1 state football quarterfinal game at Cardinal Heights Upper Middle School field in Sun Prairie, Wis., Friday, Nov. 3, 2017. AMBER ARNOLD, STATE JOURNAL

A “First Responders Night” has been scheduled at Sun Prairie’s first home football game against Beloit Memorial at 7 p.m. Aug. 24, according to Sun Prairie’s athletic department.

Sun Prairie plans to wear special “Sun Prairie Strong” uniforms that will honor those who responded to the July 10 explosion in downtown Sun Prairie. The blast killed Cory Barr, a captain in the Sun Prairie Volunteer Fire Department.

There will be an auction of some of the jerseys. Proceeds will go to the Sun Prairie relief fund and Barr’s family.

Those planning the night include Sun Prairie Athletics, the football program led by coach Brian Kaminski and the football booster club.
