2023 North/South Classic

  was played on November 19
@ Norwich University


North/South All Star Football Classic

The idea for this contest germinated years ago when chapter members were searching for ways to highlight the game of football, and bring athletes together from all divisions within the state of Vermont. The idea of a state all-star game is not an original one, as we found other chapters in other states supporting very successful games. When the idea was presented to the high school coaches, they enthusiastically endorsed the idea, and their support has been a critical ingredient in the development of today’s game.
