Rosters Announced For North-South Game

Sixty-eight of the best high school football players in Ohio will be in Columbus on Thursday at a luncheon to announce the rosters for the 2004 Grange Insurance Ohio North-South Classic, the longest-running high-school all-star game in the nation.
The luncheon will be held at noon Thursday at the Columbus Hilton, located adjacent to Easton Town Center.
The 60th Annual Ohio All-Star Classic will be held Saturday, June 18 at Columbus Crew Stadium. It will feature 68 of the top graduating seniors in Ohio, most of whom will sign letters of intent with Division I schools on Wednesday. Nineteen of the 68 have verbally committed to play for schools in the Big Ten conference, while eight others will play in the Big East, Southeastern Conference or at Notre Dame and two have verbally committed to the Mid-American Conference. A majority of the others are also expected to receive scholarships to play major-college football.
"We are proud to bring together the best high school football players in Ohio for this game," said Ed Terwilliger, president of the Ohio High School Football Coaches Association and head coach at Olentangy. "This is the premier all-star football game in the nation and the last chance to see these players before many of them go on to play at some on some of the
best Division I teams in the nation."
