Wisconsin Football Coaches All-Star game on hold for now

OSHKOSH, Wis. — The Wisconsin Football Coaches Association Executive Board has announced that the 2020 High School Football All-Star games scheduled for Saturday, July 18, have been suspended, but not cancelled.

“The WFCA will continue to monitor the situation. We will update players, parents and coaches if the restrictions are lifted, before a final decision is made,” stated the WFCA in a press release.

The three games, which are to be played at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh Titan Stadium, are to benefit the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.

Two Florence High School 2020 graduates are on the North squad’s roster for the 8-player game.

Running back and safety Kaden Schuls, and quarterback, linebacker and punter Toby Wheeler still hope to play in the game.

The duo join former Bobcats Eric DeCremer and Joe Walstrom, who were both selected in 2018, as 8-player All-Star game selections.

The suspension is partly due to the fact that the UW-Oshkosh and UW-Whitewater campuses are closed because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The two schools host practices for the players before the three all-star games are played.
