Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio) – The 12th Annual U.P. Football All-Star Game has finalized the schedule and players for this year’s match-up, and a special event to determine the teams is coming up this Saturday in Marquette.
Event Co-ordinator Todd Goldbeck called in today to the Sunny Morning Show to talk about the player draft that will be happening at 6:00 p.m. at Buffalo Wild Wings.
Goldbeck said for the past two years, the coaches have conducted a “fantasy draft” of the invited players, instead of a geographical split of North vs South or East vs West, and that will continue this year.
He said the coaches can pick whichever players they wanted on their respective teams, regardless of what schools the players or coaches are from.
Goldbeck said the draft has been a big hit with everyone, and it created two very competitive games, so the draft appears to be here to stay.
Players will either be selected to the Red Team or the Black Team at the draft event this Saturday, and the draft picks will be posted live on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/UPAllStarFootball.
The U.P. Football All-Star Game game will be played in Marquette at the Superior Dome, on Saturday, June 29, 2019. Game time is set for 1:00 p.m, with the doors opening at noon.
