Truckee players include: quarterback Chris Gerdin, linebacker Jeff Andrs, running back Josh Wilson, linebacker Josh Anagnos, defensive end Brandon Anderson, offensive tackle Ty Lewis, center David Wells, tackle Josh Hunt and Robby McClendon.

Also joining the team are two North Tahoe players and three from Incline.

The game is tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. at Reed High School in Sparks.

The 18th annual event will bring together 90 of the best graduating high school senior football players from 28 AA, AAA and AAAA high schools throughout Nevada and the Tahoe area.

The west team will take on the Allstar East team, comprised of players from Carson, Wooster, Sparks, Spring Creek, Yerington, Fernley and other teams.
