Dayton, OH— Zanesville football broke records in 2013. After completing an undefeated regular season, the Blue Devils won the Associated Press Division II poll and finished the monumental season just seconds away from playing for the state championship.
Fast forward five months and three of the seniors that guided that record breaking team will get a chance to suit up in a high school uniform again.
Quarterback Thomas Wibbeler, Wide Receiver J.T. McFarland, and Tight End Granger Long have all been selected to play in the prestigious North-South All-Star Game in Dayton's Welcome Stadium, Saturday, April 26th at 1 p.m.
The trio will represent the South squad in the large school game (Divisions I-III).
Wibbeler ended his senior season as a first team All-Ohio selection. He totaled a record-setting 3,577 yards (202-of-320) with 47 touchdowns and just seven interceptions. McFarland ended the year with 56 catches for 898 yards (16 yards per catch) and 11 touchdowns. Long added 648 receiving yards on 34 catches to go with 12 touchdowns. McFarland and Long were both named Special Mention Division II All-Ohio by the Associated Press.
Meanwhile, the MVL will be represented in the Small school game (Divisions IV-VII) to be played immediately following at 4:30 p.m. John Glenn senior Stone Morgan will play linebacker for the South after leading Muskies to the playoffs in 2013. Morgan was a Special Mention All-Ohio selection in Division IV.
The Ohio North-South All-Star game is the nation's longest
running high school football all-star game.
