The Missouri 8-Man Football Coaches Association will be hosting its third annual Missouri 8-Man Football Senior All Star Game on Saturday, July 9, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. at William Jewell College in Liberty Missouri.
38 of the state’s top 8-Man senior football players have been invited to participate in this event. They will report Thursday, July 7th to William Jewell College and practice for three days as a member of either the Blue or Red team before the event.
The teams will be coached by area 8-Man football coaches from the eight teams that made the state playoffs last Fall. Coach Chuck Borey of Worth County is the head coach of the Blue Team. He is assisted by Mike Seifert of North Andrew, Roy Noellsch of Nodaway-Holt, and Andrew Webster of North Nodaway (previously of Tarkio in 2010). The Red Team is led by head coach Brian Messer of Mound City. He is assisted by Dan Collins of Stanberry, Kurt Thacker of Hardin-Central, and Phillp Dean of Miami of Amoret. The teams were “drafted” by the coaches; thereby pitting previous teammates against one another in certain instances.
“This game showcases some of the best 8-man talent Missouri has to offer. It is such a privilege to get to work with some of the players against whom I have coached,” said Coach Borey of Worth County R-III. “We are very grateful to the William Jewell College’s coaching staff and administration for the use of their facilities. Two players will receive a scholarship from the 8-Man Football Coaches Association. Everyone has a great time, and we encourage anyone who is a fan of football to attend.”
Admission is $7.00 per person. Gates open up at 5:00 p.m. T-shirts and DVDs of the game will be for sale throughout the contest. All proceeds go to the Missouri 8-Man Football Coaches Association.
