When the West All-stars take to the field in Wichita Falls for the Six Man D1 All-Star football game Saturday night, our area well be well represented with the biggest stars from our smaller schools.

For Anton’s Javier Savedra, it’s an amazing way to cap off his high school football career. “Oh man, it’s great to be out here with these guys, familiar faces that I’ve seen around back in the Hub City. Coming in from Anton, I’ve seen Happy kids and it’s great talent. It feels good to be back on the field one last night.”
Meadow’s Adrian Flores is playing in his 2nd straight all-star game as he helped the USA win the Can-Am Bowl on July 5th.  “Being an all-star game, it’s not to hard because everyone kinda has an idea of what they have to do and what they can do. It’s putting the right guys in the right spots.”
O’Donnell’s AJ Rivas who scored 10 touchdowns in a 90-60 win over Grady back in October, is pumped to be on this best of the best team of all-stars from the West. “It’s gonna be a lot of fun. We have probably the best team in West Texas here. We’re confident we have a pretty solid lineup.”
That can pose a problem for the West All-Star’s Coach Shane Mallory, who was at Hermleigh, but is now Union Hill’s Coach. “There’s so much talent out here. The hardest part is trying to figure out how to get them all equally in and touching the ball. We feel like there are so many things we can do.”
Other West D1 All-Stars from our area include Valley’s Germain Mendoza, Spur’s Eli Shelton, Borden County’s Korbin Martinez and Hermleigh’s Coletyn King.
The D1 All Star game is Saturday night in Wichita Falls.
