The rosters for the annual UNICO All-Star Football Classic were released Saturday for the game that will be played at 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 30, at Lake-Lehman High School.
Hanover Area’s Ron Hummer and GAR’s Paul Wiedlich Jr. will coach the East team. The West will be coached by Wyoming Valley West’s Pat Keating unless the Spartans are still playing in the postseason. If they are, then Holy Redeemer’s Pat Reece will coach the team.
The West has won seven consecutive times including a 27-14 victory last year. The game has been played annually since 1952 with the exception of 1972 when it was cancelled due to the Agnes Flood. Lake-Lehman will host the game for the first time. It has been played at six other stadiums.
