The rosters for the South Dakota High School Football All-Star game were announced Monday. This year’s game will be played at 1 p.m. on July 9 at the DakotaDome in Vermillion, the first time in the game’s 30-year history that it has been played away from Aberdeen.
The 84 participating players — including 20 Argus Leader Elite 45 honorees and 27 honorable mentions — will gather in Vermillion on July 6 for practices and other events leading up to the game. Athletes had to pay $300 to participate in past years, but that cost has been eliminated for this year’s event.
A number of Sioux Falls-area products will participate in the game, including Luke Fritsch, Jack Peery, Billy Daniel and Dodi Makwinja of Class AAA runner-up O’Gorman. Former Mitchell quarterback Kanin Nelson, who enrolled at South Dakota State for spring practice, is also set to participate. The complete rosters are listed below.
