WMBD/WYZZ-TV - BLOOMINGTON, Ill. - Some of the top high school football players in the state are in Bloomington for this weekend's Shriner's Al-Star game.
Caleb Wilson/Tri-Valley: "I get to play with the guys who are the best high school football players in Ilinois, that's pretty exciting," said former Tri-Valley star running back Caleb Wilson. "It's an accomplishment, I think."
The game will pit East vs. West in a matchup featuring players who just recently graduated from high school.
"I'm from a Class 1A school, these guys are all 5A, 6A." said Flanagan graduate Jon Hayes. "I'm from a small school. But I think I can do it."
The game is at 6:30 p.m. at Illinois Wesleyan's Tucci Field on Saturday.
