Some of the best recently graduated high school football players in North Central Ohio are preparing for one last game on the high school gridiron.

Saturday night the McDonald's/Buckeye Superstore North-South All-Star Football game will be played at Lexington high school. Some 70 players will participate in the contest, with teams consisting of players from school's all over the region.

Colonel Crawford head football coach Ryan Teglovic will lead the South squad on Saturday night and has the tough task of getting his players ready for action in just four days. Teglovic says it's relatively easy to put together a defensive gameplan for the contest, but teaching a group of guys that have never played together an offense in less than a week can be challenging.

Teglovic added that it's a great experience for players to get to know other guys they've played against their whole lives on a more personal level. The players agreed, as many said it has been a fun experience practicing with their new teammates.

While players each had their own individual goals they are looking to accomplish in the All-Star game, one thing was consistent; they want to get a win. The North squad shared their motivation for winning the game, so it should be an exciting contest on Saturday night.

The game kicks off at 7 p.m. with tickets available in advance for $6 or at the gate on Saturday for $8. WMFD will have highlights from the game Monday evening on NewsWatch.
