Local all-stars to play in North-South football game
CASTLETON — A dozen Middlebury, Otter Valley and Mount Abraham/Vergennes union high school football players will join their counterparts from around the state this Saturday at Castleton State College, which is hosting the 2014 North-South Senior All-Star Football Game.
Kickoff is at 12:30 p.m. for the 14th annual contest that concludes the Vermont high school fall season. Tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for students and will be available at the gate starting an hour prior to game time. All proceeds benefit the scholarship and grant programs of the Vermont Chapter of the National Football Foundation.
All 34 high school football programs from the state’s three divisions are represented on the two rosters. Jim Hill of Otter Valley will serve as head coach for the South, while Brian Divilbiss of U-32 will lead the North staff.
Players from the D-I champion Tigers and D-III finalist Otters will take the field for the South squad.
Seniors chosen from MUHS were Cullen Hathaway, Lucas Plouffe, Connor Quinn, Bobby Ritter, Austin Robinson and Justin Stone. Plouffe, however, was injured during this past Saturday’s championship game.
Hunter Birchmore, Joe Scarborough, Adam Sherwin and John Winslow will represent Otter Valley on the South squad.
Two Eagles will play for the North team, Erik Eisenhower and Tyrus Keith.
