It’s now official.
The Wisconsin Football Coaches Association announced that its annual all-star high school football games, scheduled for July 18 in Oshkosh, have been canceled.
“The 2020 WFCA All-Star Games, benefitting Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, and the All-Star banquet are canceled due to the COVID pandemic,” the association’s executive board wrote. “We realize that this is disappointing to the players, parents, coaches and fans of the games, but the current situation without the use of college campuses makes it logistically impossible to hold the games this year.”
The games were to have been played at Titan Stadium at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. Players were to have practiced at UW-Oshkosh and UW-Whitewater.
The association had earlier announced that plans for the 44th annual games had been suspended.
The games include several of the state’s top recently graduated seniors.
New London’s Sean Cortwright and Brady Rodgers and Hortonville’s Jayqon Owens and Max Sullivan were listed on the North team roster for the large-school game and Hortonville assistant coach Matt Hintz was an assistant on the team.
The small-school North team roster included Amherst’s Nick Dombrowski and Aidan Elwood, while Amherst coach Mark Lusic was an assistant coach on the team.
“We look forward to resuming the WFCA All-Star Games in July 2021,” the board wrote. “We appreciate all the efforts of players, parents and coaches prior to this difficult decision and wish you the best going forward in these unprecedented times.”
