The ninth annual East-West All-Star Game of the Pennsylvania State Football Coaches Association is scheduled for 6 p.m. tomorrow at Memorial Park in Altoona.
The game, also known as the Pennsylvania Bowl, features 68 college-bound seniors from Pennsylvania high schools. The association chooses the players during the same film-review process as the one for Saturday's Big 33 All-Star Classic.
This year's East team features 10 local players and three local coaches.
Serving as assistant coaches for East head coach Mark Evans of Eastern Lebanon County High School are Upper Dublin's Bret Stover, West Chester Henderson's Joe Walsh, and Father Judge's Tom Coyle.
Local players on the East roster are lineman Adam Citko of Archbishop Wood, tight end Eric Fath of Quakertown, quarterback Mark Giubilato of St. Joseph's Prep, lineman Jack Lowney of Archbishop Carroll, cornerback Raymond Maples of West Catholic, linebacker Anthony McCloskey of Cardinal O'Hara, linebacker John Nurthen of Great Valley, defensive back Tom Ryan of Father Judge, defensive back Mike Yeager of St. Joseph's Prep, and quarterback Zach Zulli of Perkiomen Valley.
The West won, 10-0, last season, but the East holds the series lead, five victories to three.
Organizers said that the game, to be shown on the Pennsylvania Cable Network, had awarded more than $45,000 to former players through a scholarship program.
