For the first time in the history of the event, there will be two PSFCA East-West all-star football games.

On Sunday, May 30, the Pennsylvania Scholastic Football Coaches Association will host two games at Central Dauphin’s Landis Field, which will be split by classification and pit all-stars from the Eastern part of Pennsylvania against counterparts from the West.

The first game during Memorial Day Weekend will be played at noon with players from Class A-3A. The second game will start four hours later and will feature players from Class 4A-6A. The annual Big 33 Football Classic between all-stars from Pennsylvania and Maryland will be at 1 p.m. May 31, also at Central Dauphin.

The PSFCA announced rosters for the small school game Monday and. The rosters for the second game will be announced at 2 p.m. Monday.

Quarterback Ameer Dudley and offensive lineman Josh Campbell from PIAA Class 3A champion Central Valley were among five WPIAL players selected for the opening game.

Laurel lineman Mitch Miles, New Brighton running back Nyasanu Greene and Elizabeth Forward defensive back Nico Mrvos were also selected. Neshannock’s Fred Mozzocio was selected as an assistant coach for the game.

Westinghouse athlete Bruce Darius also was named to the small school roster.

Mrvos was a Swiss-army knife for the Warriors this season as they made a run to the WPIAL championship before running into Dudley, Campbell and Central Valley. He threw for 120 yards, ran for 366 yards, and caught eight passes for 121 yards. He also tallied 28 tackles, five tackles for a loss, and picked off two passes.

In his final high school season, Dudley passed for 1,297 yards and 16 touchdowns while only throwing four interceptions and leading Central Valley to a PIAA Class 3A title. He also rushed for 331 yards and three touchdowns.

Campbell tallied 103 tackles and racked up 16 tackles for a loss. He also had two sacks.

Greene was a workhorse for the Lions and led them to a 5-2 overall record. The Lions just missed out on a playoff appearance as they finished second in the Midwestern Athletic Conference behind eventual WPIAL champion Beaver Falls.

Miles recorded 45 tackles for the Spartans and also tallied a team-high three sacks.
