2024 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 22nd at 7:00PM.
To apply, click on the link below.
We are currently accepting forms from all 2024 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 16th 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).
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!!
