SAN DIEGO, Calif., (KYMA, KECY) - Prep football across Yuma and the Imperial Valley came to a close earlier this month, but several athletes and coaches were itching to get some more time on the field.
Friday night featured the 9th Annual SDFNL Showcase Game - for football players in the San Diego area to play with some of the best-of-the-best one last time. The event has opened a path for recruiting, landing over 1,000 scholarships in those nine years.
The game pitted two teams against each other: the Red Starz and the Blue Starz.
The Red Starz were coached by none other than Imperial's David Shaw who led a group that included several of his own players. Representing the Red were Imperial's Seth Shaw, Devin Meza and Zach Ray, along with one of the top rushers in the entire San Diego Section, Palo Verde's Markus Macon.
On the Blue side, Aiden Shields rounded out Imperial's representation and Palo Verde brought out Carlos Gomez, Ian Maciel and Jonathan Crowe.
KYMA Sports will follow up with Coach Shaw on the experience for him and the players next week.
