When I asked a few questions to some players about what it means to them to be selected to play in this game, I got some great responses. Below are just a few….

Blue Mountain’s Jake Bobbin, who is committed to further his education and football career at Robert Morris University along side his brother Ross, who is also scheduled to participate in this inaugural all star game, said that “It’s an honor to be selected to play in this first ever all star game, It means a lot if we can come up with a win to end our high school football career. Jake also stated that “It’s blast to have my brother on my side, we are looking forward to play our last high school football game together.” When I asked Jake if he would like to score an offensive touchdown in this game like he did in the SCFCA All Star game in the fall, he responded by saying, “It would be nice again to score, not every game an offensive lineman scores, the feeling would be great.”

Another Blue Mountain Senior got the call as well to play, Gavin Guers, who is committed to further his athletic career and education at SUNY Cortland. “I’m pumped to be part of the first ever Schuylkill Colonial all star game, it’s a big honor. I know some guys from the Colonial League, so to be able to take it to them would be great”, said Gavin ! Guers, who is also selected to play in the PSFCA Big 33 East vs West Big School All Star game Memorial Day Weekend, says “I hope to represent Schuylkill County and my high school well at the next level and at the East vs. West game!!” That wasn’t all that Gavin would have to say either when asked the questions, he added, “for our Schuylkill League team to bring home the W, would be amazing. Our South team in the SCFCA game had great chemistry, and to add on some dogs from the North, I truly think we can dominate. We play hard nose football in the Schuylkill League and I want people to know that!!”

Southern Lehigh’s Blaze Curry said, “To represent the league that I’ve played in for 4 years really means a lot to me. Curry would go on to say, “having Coach Sams as the head coach of this game is something very special, it is very comforting knowing the man I saw every day for the past 3 years will be coaching the Colonial League team.” Like Gavin from the Schuylkill squad, Curry and his teammates want to win the first ever Schuylkill/Colonial League All Star game. “To play with guys that I’ve played and fought against will be different but, we all have the same goal, to win”, said Curry


Schuylkill and Colonial Coaches:

Blue Mountain’s Head Coach, Tom Gallagher will be assisting the coaching duties, helping out defensively. “I’m excited for this opportunity to coach our area’s best seniors one last time as we face the Colonial League”, Coach Gallagher would reply. Gallagher would also mention how he “hopes we(the coaches), can give these guys the proper send off to end their high school careers and come out with a victory.” ” I’m really thankful to be apart of this staff, and I’d like to thank Mike Farr for bringing me on for this opportunity”, replied Coach Gal.

Next year’s All Star game is scheduled to be held at Palmerton HS, with hopes of continuing for future years to come, at least for Schuylkill League coaches, according to Schuylkill Haven head coach Mike Farr, for now, it “will be a wait and see” type of deal. When I asked Coach Farr if he was excited about the game, he said, “Very excited, anytime we give student athletes the opportunity to perform in front of their families and fans, it’s a big deal.” Coach Farr would also like to ask “football fans from all over eastern PA to come out and support these seniors and this game. And to let everyone know both teams are extremely thankful for our sponsors.”
