Lake-Lehman will host the UNICO All-Star Football Classic for the first time at 5 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 30 a nd six Black Knights will play on their home field - unless they have something better to do that weekend.
Rosters for the game, which features senior players from the Wyoming Valley Conference, were revealed last week with the understanding that players on teams still active in the state playoffs will not be eligible to play.
Lake-Lehman, which is in the District 2 Class AA playoffs trying to advance to state play, had six players selected to the West team scheduled to be coached by Wyoming Valley West’s Pat Keating. If Keating is still busy with state playoffs, Holy Redeemer’s Pat Reece will step in.
Two-way lineman Pete Borum, running back/linebacker Brady Butler, running back/defensive tackle Dustin Jones, wide receiver Kyle Romanofski, wide receiver/linebacker Josh Winters and running back/linebacker Bobby Wright were selected from Lake-Lehman.
The West will try to extend a seven-game winning streak.
Dallas also has six players in the game – running back/linebackers Logan Brace and Bill Gately, two-way linemen Luke Edwards and Rocky Rutkoski, tight end/defensive lineman Mark Michno and offensive lineman/linebacker Mike Mihal.
Tunkhannock had offensive lineman/linebacker Alex Bishop, two-way linemen Josh Kosak and Ben Swilley, running back/linebacker Shane Edmondson and wide receiver/defensive back Mike Markovitz selected for the team.
The West also features players from Berwick, Holy Redeemer, Northwest, Wyoming Area and Wyoming Valley West.
The East, which will be coached by Hanover Area’s Ron Hummer and GAR’s Paul Wiedlich Jr., has players from those two schools as well as Coughlin, Crestwood, Hazleton Area, Meyers, Nanticoke and Pittston Area.
