Four Atascadero High Greyhounds will line up for San Luis Obispo County in the third annual FCA All-Star Football Classic. The Hounds are the latest players selected by coaches and unveiled on KSBY News. The game is set for Saturday, June 1 at Lompoc High.
All-Pac 7 League lineman Lance Zook, wide receiver Wayde Vierra, All-League lineman Adam Schwarm and Pac-7 Defensive Lineman of the Year Dominic Chance were selected to represent the Greyhounds.
Chance and Schwarm also earned All-CIF honors.
The Atascadero quartet is excited for the opportunity to end Northern Santa Barbara County's two year reign as FCA All-Star champions.
"Last year I came out and watched the game at our field and it seemed pretty cool and looked like a lot of fun and really high competition. So I was really excited to get to play one more game before I go off to college," said Vierra, who caught 30 passes for 459 yards and 2 touchdowns. He also made 42 tackles on defense.
"You're playing with the best in the county. That's kind of the best feeling ever to compete with them. Also all these guys you've been fighting with now you have to become brothers with them in order to pull through," added Chance, who recorded 81 tackles, 10 tackles for loss, 6.5 sacks and forced two fumbles at linebacker. The 6-1, 208 pound Chance also caught 32 passes for 598 yards and 5 touchdowns his senior season.
Zook, a 5-10, 198 pound lineman, and the 6-2, 210 pound Schwarm anchored the Hounds' offensive line. They helped Atascadero, which reached the CIF semifinals, average 128 passing yards and 204 rushing yards per game.
Atascadero High is sponsored by Paso Robles Chevrolet. The dealership donated $2,500 toward the $20,000 car raffle that will be drawn at the game. "It's a great experience for the kids to be able to play together, develop those relationships and also for the communities as well. There's a lot of money coming out of the communities that's pouring back into their programs," said Lars Jorgensen, the General Manager of Paso Robles Chevrolet.
Game and raffle tickets are now available at the participating schools, which included the 7 Los Padres League and 7 Pac 7 League squads, as well as Mission Prep.
The event has raised more than $280,000 for the participating schools.
