BROCKWAY – The 5th annual Frank Varischetti All-Star football game has been postponed to Friday, August 7th, at Frank Varischetti Field in Brockway.

The game was originally scheduled for Friday, June 26th.

Game Manager Nick Hoffman said, “Our decision combines our desire to play the game and honor the outstanding scholar-athletes who have been selected to play and our commitment to do so in the most safe and responsible way possible in light of the Covid-19 situation.

“We hope playing the game at a later date means players along with their families, friends and fans will have the opportunity for a much-needed respite,” Hoffman said.

The Frank Varischetti All-Star game features graduated seniors from 21 schools in District 9 representing the former Allegheny Mountain League and the Keystone Shortly Athletic Conference.

Game Sponsors fund $1,000 scholarships that will be awarded to a number of players at halftime.
