Clovis High School has announced that the CHS football jersey of Hank Baskett will be retired during a halftime ceremony at the Wildcats’ District 4-5A basketball game against Carlsbad next Tuesday at Rock Staubus Gym.

Baskett, a 2001 CHS grad, recently completed his rookie season in the NFL, helping the Philadelphia Eagles win the NFC East title and reach the second round of the playoffs.

The CHS athletic office announced that for that night only, student ticket prices for the game will be $2. The school said adult and senior prices will remain unchanged.
