NEWS: Players Announced for 2017 SAS All-Star Football Game
San Antonio Sports

October, 2016

One-hundred eight (108) student athletes representing 60 high schools have been chosen for the San Antonio Sports All-Star Football Game, presented by H-E-B, which will showcase top local high school players in a game following the 2017 U.S. Army All-American Bowl on Saturday, Jan. 7, 2017 in the Alamodome.  In the battle of East vs. West, the area’s top senior players will take the field at 5 p.m. after the best in the country kick-off at 12 noon.


One ticket serves as admission for both the U.S. Army All-American Bowl and the San Antonio Sports All-Star Football Game presented by H-E-B.  Tickets are available at the Alamodome Box Office and through for $20.


            Lee High School’s head football coach Danny Kloza will coach the West, and Juan Morales, from Highlands High School, will coach the East. Players were nominated by their high school coaches and chosen by a selection committee. Fifty-five (55) were named to All-District teams last year.


The San Antonio Sports All-Star Football Game, presented by H-E-B, will feature players that are committed to play for some of the top universities in the country as well as players looking for an additional chance to impress college scouts with potential scholarships to offer. Thirty-five (35) seniors who were in last year’s All-Star Game went on to play college football.


Four high school cheer squads will also have the opportunity to win a $1,000 grant and cheer at the nationally-televised U.S. Army All-American Bowl or the locally-televised (CW35) San Antonio Sports All-Star Football Game. In the San Antonio Sports All-Star Cheer Challenge, powered by CPS Energy, participating schools’ cheer squads will earn the chance through online voting.


San Antonio loves high school football, and game day will be one of the best lineups of high school football showcase events anywhere in the country!
