All-star football format changes again
The Kentucky Football Coaches Association has announced a format change for the retooled Best of the Bluegrass all-star game, which will be played Dec. 12 at St. Xavier High School in Louisville.
The game, co-hosted by the KFCA and the Greater Louisville Football Coaches Association, will feature a greater Louisville team against a team of players from the rest of the state. The Louisville-area made up of players from schools in Jefferson, Bullitt, Oldham and Shelby counties, as well as schools that play in football districts with Jefferson County schools and are GLFCA members.
Forty players will be picked for each side, with nominations and selections taking place later this fall. The game date falls on a Sunday on the weekend following the state finals. Kickoff is at 2 p.m. at the 6,200-seat St. Xavier Stadium.
The game replaces the East vs. West game that was played in June in each of the last two years but was canceled this year. That game in turn replaced the Kentucky-Tennessee series that was discontinued after the 2007 game.
