2023 8-Man All-Star Football Game
Plans are being made for the Missouri 8-Man Football Coaches Association annual Senior All-Star Football Game! This year's game will be held on the campus of Missouri Western State University on Saturday, June 24th at 7:00PM.
To apply, click on the link below.
We are currently accepting forms from all 2023 Seniors who would like to participate in this year's all-star football game. We encourage all Seniors to apply who are interested in playing. This will mark the 15th annual all-star game, and up to this point, we have never turned anyone away who has wanted to play. However, with the growth of 8 man football across Missouri, we will cap the game at a total of 50 players(25 players per team). Last year we had 47 Seniors play, so everyone that applied was given the opportunity to play!!
Seniors who are selected to the All-State football team in December will have an automatic spot on the all-star roster, but you still must apply now! If you do not apply, you will not automatically be placed on the all-star team. Once it is determined how many all-state players we have, the all-star teams will then be filled by non all-state Seniors who have applied to play. If more than 50 players apply, the all-star coaches will draft the players needed to fill out the rosters. There will also be a waiting list if accepted players become unavailable to participate. Again, we have never turned anyone away so please apply!!
