Going into Saturday's East/West high school all-star game local players and coaches are looking forward to the chance to take the field one last time.
"This game gives our guys a good opportunity to play in a game with no pressure on them," said Brawley coach Pedro Carranza, who will be leading the West squad. "We want them to have fun and just showcase what they have. It's pretty much like a pick-up game. That's basically what it is. But at the same time that competitiveness is still there."
Local high school seniors will form two squads for the inaugural game to begin at 7 p.m. at Imperial High School.
Representing the East will be seniors from Calexico, Central Union, Holtville and Vincent Memorial, who will battle with a West team made up of players from Brawley Union, Calipatria, Imperial and Southwest.
