Good morning!

It’s GAMEDAY!

Across the area today, graduated players are nervous, believe me, as they get ready to play their final game representing their high schools.

Tonight at 7 p.m. is the 83rd Scranton Lions Club Dream Game all-star classic. It’s going to be VERY hot tonight, I am hoping I have conditioned myself for this heat.

In today’s Times-Tribune we announced the starting lineups for the City and County all-stars. Now, everybody is going to get a chance to play in this game. And I am predicting a very competitive game. I think there are really outstanding players on both sides.

This is Day 9 of my coverage of the 19th Dream Game that I am going to cover as a staff writer at The Times-Tribune. So think about this, almost all of the players on the field were probably just born when I covered my first Dream Game.

I want to wish all of the players a lot of luck and hope for an outstanding event.

 

North Pocono’s Matt Slagus, Tyler Musgrave and Ben Dial.
