East-West All Star Game
The PSFCA East West All Star Game was first played in 2001 with the West winning big, 31-3. It was designed to provide another opportunity to display Pennsylvania’s all star high school footballers in addition to the Big 33 Football Classic. A joint venture between the PSFCA and the PA Football News, the game is played at Altoona’s Mansion Park Stadium each year while the entire Altoona community has rallied round the event to help make it successful.c
Just as in the case of the Big 33 game, the East West contest is played during the summer (in June with the Big 33 played in July). Participants include players from high schools around the commonwealth who have just graduated. Divided into two teams of approximately 34 players each, the showcase event has been very successful with many of its participants having gone on to forge outstanding collegiate and professional football careers.
Below is a list of the sixteen Neshaminy players who have suited up for the East-West Game starting with Steve Brett, Jay Collins and Keith Ennis in 2002 right on through to Denzel Hughes in 2016. They are identified by the year they played, their position and college attended — and needless to say, they have all played for the East squad.
