Copper Bowl Roundup

Bowl History and Growth
The Copper Bowl was started by tournament director Don Dickinson sixteen years ago. It was originally associated with the football bowl game with the same name. Of course, like most bowl games, the football bowl has since been renamed for a company (Insight) and moved to a new city (Phoenix).
