Kirk Cousins is ready to dazzle under Friday night lights one more time.

The current Washington Redskins quarterback and leader of Holland (Mich.) Christian School's 2006 football team, Cousins will play in a charity seven-on-seven one-hand touch football game against the school's 2008 team.

While Cousins is the only NFLer from the 2006 squad, and the most prominent football alum from the school, the 2008 team is best known locally for winning a state title.

So to settle the score in a longstanding debate into which team is better, and to raise funds for the school as well, the two teams will square off at 7 p.m. on Friday, May 15.

"This is fun, but this is totally competitive," Cousins told "We have guys flying in for this. We want to win and they [the 2008 team] don't want to lose. They have a perfect record at stake. And I don't want to lose. I mean, I play in the NFL. I don't want to come back and lose at my high school."

Cousins was a two-year start at Holland Christian, where he set 35 school passing and total offense records.

As a senior, he was named Area Player of the Year after accumulating more than 2,000 yards and 28 touchdowns on 130 completions.
