Written by: on Saturday, June 12th, 2021



Last night I ventured to Vandalia Butler high school to catch the All-Star game known as the Pigskin Classic. I have attended this one in the past and have always enjoyed it. Before I get started with the article. I tried to get the P.A. guy to give me his rosters with players’ numbers and names on them but he said no. So I am only able to use the numbers I have from my notes with no names, sorry for this.
The South team would get the first break in this one when #56 recovered a fumble by #15 from the North just under two minutes into the contest. The South team would need just three plays to cover the 17-yards needed for the games first score, with #6 making the touchdown kick, with #10 holding #18 would make this a 7-0 game with his kick. The North squad would get a nice catch from #19 that took the ball all the way down to the South five-yard line, then a pass from #15 to #19 for a 3-yard score gave us a 7-6 game. #27 would lock it up with his P.A.T. with 7:26 left in the exciting opening quarter. Each team would have one more nice play before the quarter came to a close. First, on fourth and one the North got a pass from #15 to #5 for 14-yards, then the South would see #56 get to #15 for a loss of three yards.

The 2nd quarter was breezing along at a rapid pace when the South capped off a 12-play, 58-yard drive with a 5-yard touchdown pass to #6 on a nicely ran slant. The P.A.T. would make this a 14-7 game with 6:17 left in the half. At the 4:00 mark #3 from the North was able to make an easy pick to give his team the ball. Luch would bounce back to the South’s side when #34 recovered a North fumble and then return it to the North 20-yard line. A sack by #43 of the North held the South up for a short time however that would change on the last play of the half with #22 scoring from 3-yards out to give us a 21-7 game at the half.

Not even 2:00 into the 2nd half #2 for the South hit #38 for a big 50-yard catch. A little over a minute later the same combo connected on a 29-yard touchdown to give us a 27-7 game. The North wasted no time responding to the South score. #87 would catch a pass for 47 yards and then a short time later he would catch a 2-yard touchdown pass to close the gap to 27-14 with 6:04 left in the third quarter. The North defense got a big-time play when #33 got to #22 of the South tackling him for a loss of 10-yards. After the North got the ball back three pass completions would result in another touchdown. First, #85 had a 20-yard catch, then #89 caught one for 24-yards, and then #89 closed out the drive with the 1-yard touchdown catch making this a 27-21 game, with 1:57 showing on the clock. The North defense would make two big plays to end the quarter. First, #33 got to #22 for a loss of three, then #21 made a very easy pick and return it to the South 4-yard line.

On the ensuing drive, the North offense would have to settle for a chip shot field goal from #27 making the a three-point game. #61 for the North would sack #2 to bring up and long with a punt following. With 8:48 left in the game #5 for the North showed amazing concentration when he somehow caught a tipped pass for an 11-yard gain. Once again the offense faded from there and had to settle for a 49-yard field goal attempt by #27 that was no good leaving this a three-point game.
the North defense would get a fine play from #43, who got to #8 for a loss of 7-yards. At the 5:05 mark of the final frame, the South appeared to get an 80-yard pick-six from #4 but a personal foul on the South negated the score. This drive fizzled out a short time later and the North would go to work on tying this one up. #11 hit #89 for 30-yards. The South defense would get a sack of #11 from #16 for a loss of 5-yards. The North would recover with a 47-yard field goal by #27 to lock things up at 27. The kick would have been good from at least 50-yards. The North defense forced a punt when #43 sacked #2 for a loss of 5. The North would make a fair catch on the punt, which allowed them to try a 63-yard free-kick from #27 that came up well short then 0:22 seconds later we were headed to overtime.
The North squad would get the ball first in the overtime period. #11 hit #19 for a 14-yard gain. The same combo struck again for a 6-yard touchdown. #27 would make this a 34-27 game, with his kick. #51 for the North sacked #2 of the South for a 5-yard loss. The South offense would have to work hard to recover from the sack and they did just that, with the end result being a 6-yard touchdown pass from #2 to #10. A 15-yard unsportsmanlike flag was thrown on the South after the score bringing the ball back to the 18-yard line for the point after attempt. After a timeout, the South’s offense came back on the field to try and get the win. #2 was under heavy pressure causing his pass to be high and out of the reach of his intended receiver securing the come from behind win for the North.
