The Thanksgiving tournament which brought several top level talents to the Springfield area the past few years is now in jeopardy after the named sponsor of the tournament was fired from his position at Country Financial after several irregularities were found in customers' policies and is currently under a police investigation. Lopez is also the vice president of the District 186 school board. After the investigation came out, Lincoln Land Community College, which was where the tournament was moved to after it was held at Lanphier High school the first two years, rescinded the five year hosting agreement they had signed earlier this year.

Besides Lanphier, Peoria Manual is set to be in the 2018 field along with 4 Chicago area schools (including 3 CPL schools), East St. Louis, and St. Louis Cardinal Ritter.
