The game is from the vision of Central defensive back coach Tony Perry, better known as "The DB Guru." Perry (right of photo) has helped coach nearly 60 college football players in his 30 years of coaching.
Here's some players to look out for:
MICHIAH QUICK, ATHLETE, CENTRAL
- If anyone hasn't gotten a chance to see Quick play, now is the time. Quick (photo) is putting the finishing touches on an epic prep career that saw: three seasons on varsity, several highlight-reel plays on offense, defense and special teams, All-Tri River Athletic Conference/All-Area honors and lastly, over 30 colleges offering him a scholarship. Expect Quick to be used in a lot of ways.
DEVON BREWER, SAFETY, CENTRAL
- Brewer, a University of Arizona commit, will help patrol the North squad secondary with his viscous hits and ball-hawking skills.
NICK WILSON, RUNNING BACK, CENTRAL
- Wilson, the other Arizona commit, will likely share the load in what's becoming a deep backfield for the North. Wilson has gone from elusive back to a north-south grinder this past season. His performances during the 2013 TRAC season proves that.
BLAKE WRIGHT, RUNNING BACK, EDISON
- Wright provides added muscle to the North. The Nevada commit is one of the hardest runners to bring down with his physical strength and breakaway speed.
EDGAR SEGURA, RUNNING BACK, MENDOTA
- Segura has to be one of the hidden gems of the state. Segura broke school and state records for the Aztecs. A big performance could finally land him late interest from the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS/Division I) ranks.
KHALIL MONTGOMERY, RUNNING BACK, IMMANUEL-REEDLEY
- Montgomery, like Segura, is another hidden gem in the state. The 5-foot-10, 185-pound Montgomery shattered the Immanuel school record for rushing yards with 2,663. Montgomery also scored 32 touchdowns.
TASHON SMALLWOOD, DEFENSIVE TACKLE, CENTRAL
- Smallwood is also putting the final touches on a decorated career at Central. The three-year varsity starter led the Grizzlies in sacks in every season. Look for his explosion off the ball and hands in this game.
YASMON HAYNES, DEFENSIVE TACKLE, EDISON
- Haynes was one of the cornestones on a talented and aggressive Tiger defense that was one of the best in the Central Section. Haynes combines power and quick feet off the line.
DEJONTE O'NEAL, RUNNING BACK/CORNERBACK, BULLARD
- O'Neal isn't just an ankle-breaking back at 5-foot-7, 170-pounds, but also has surprising toughness in between the tackles. O'Neal holds two offers from Eastern Washington and Sacramento State.
RICHARD DOCTOR, RUNNING BACK, LEMOORE
- A 2,000 yard rusher this past year, Doctor will be one of two players in this game that recently participated in the Blue-Grey All-American game.
DARIAN DUCKETT, FULLBACK/LINEBACKER, BULLARD
- Duckett played linebacker in the Blue-Grey game and made one game changing interception. He may also be used in the backfield to help clear room for the deep North backfield.
DARREN GARDENHIRE, SAFETY, CABRILLO-LONG BEACH
- A hard-hitting ball-hawk in the secondary who's committed to Washington.
ELIJAH MOODY, CORNERBACK, LONG BEACH POLY
- The Nevada commit brings fluid hips and good coverage speed for the South defense.
