NISD athletes to play in All-Star Game

Twenty five NISD athletes from 11 high schools were selected to play in the 2022 San Antonio Sports All-Star Football Game.

The game will be played at 5 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 8, 2021 at the Alamodome. The game follows the All-American Bowl. 

One ticket serves as admission for both the All-American Bowl and San Antonio Sports All-Star Football Game presented by H-E-B. General admission ($10) and reserved tickets ($20) will go on sale in late October. The game will also be broadcast on CW35 and ESPN 1250 radio.

Players representing 61 high schools have been chosen for the game which will showcase top local high school players. They were nominated by their high school coaches and chosen by a selection committee.

The San Antonio Sports All-Star Football Game, presented by H-E-B, will feature players that are committed to play for some of the top universities in the country as well as players looking for an additional chance to impress college scouts.
