SOUTHLAND, TX (KCBD) -

The Six Man Football All Star games are being held in Wichita Falls this weekend.

The Division 2 game is Friday night at Memorial Stadium.

There are three Southland Eagles on the squad after their outstanding season under Coach Justin Rucker. Zachary Vizcaino, Kevin Dorman and Tony DeLeon get to play together one last time. Something that’s hard to digest for Tony DeLeon.

“Emotional really. Get to play with guys I grew up with and get to play with them one last time.

Zachary Vizcaino says “It’s gonna be bittersweet. I’m never gonna step on a gridiron again. I’m gonna play hard.”

The fact three Eagles have soared onto the All-Star team is an awesome fact not lost on Kevin Dorman.

“It’s gonna be fun. We have a really good team, very fast and very smart. Three Southland kids! When have you heard that? Never! This is the best team we ever had. We plan to make it the best all-star team.”

Also on the West from our area is Justin Conteras from Dawson and Brandon Ortega from Amherst.

The D2 All-Star game is Friday night and the D1 football game is Saturday night.
