Bucs' Stenberg ready for East-West All-Star Game

The starting linebacking unit for the West squad in Saturday's 31st annual Michigan High School Football Coaches Association's East-West All-Star Game is a clear example of the strong talent level from the O-K Red Conference. Led by Grand Haven's Dalton Stenberg, each of the team's starting linebackers hail from schools in the conference, which also includes West Ottawa's Desmond Morgan and Rockford's Brett Egnatuk.

“It’s great talent all the way around,” Stenberg said on Thursday during a break between three-a-day practices at Central Michigan University — the host of the game.

“Everyone here is the best of their team. There’s not those few players out there who aren’t as talented. Everyone here was a team leader on their high school team, so it makes (practices) really competitive.”

The contest will kickoff from CMU’s Kelly-Shorts Stadium at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday. The game features 88 of the best senior high school players in the state as selected by a group of MHSFCA member coaches.

Stenberg, who will continue his football career at the Unviersity of Toledo, is the second Grand Haven player in the All-Star game in as many years. Jordan Goetz played in the game at MSU’s Spartan Stadium in 2009.
