However, this will be the third year that they will be playing the northern region of District 10 and the newer NWPFCA. Both rosters consist of graduating seniors from District 10 schools along with a handful of District 9 schools, and players have been selected from schools as far south as Karns City and Wilmington to as far north as Erie and North East, featuring many players who were All-State selections and most of the players will be playing at the collegiate level.
Kickoff for the 2014 all-star game is scheduled for 7 p.m. Immediately following the game, two players from each team will be recognized as the Most Outstanding Offensive Player and Most Outstanding Defensive Player.
