Last Saturday night players at the 605 All-Star Game strapped on their pads for the last time on the high school level – some for the last time period.
Over the last few months we have reported on several players who have signed scholarships to play football in college. Others are going to play at the junior college level with the hopes of moving on to D-1 in a year or two. Here is where some of the local players from the 605 game are going in the Fall to continue the dream or for an education.
