It is Tuesday so it is time for KSBY Sports to make another exclusive announcement of the latest players named to the third annual FCA All-Star Football Classic. The third annual showdown between the top seniors in Northern Santa Barbara County against the best from San Luis Obispo County is set for Saturday, June 1 at Lompoc High School.
Santa Maria Nissan Mazda hosted the four Righetti High players named to the Northern Santa Barbara County team. They include All-Pac 7 League receiver Adrian Guzman, All-league safety Luke Wilson, All-League quarterback and punter Troy Prober and offensive lineman Dante Gamble.
"It's all my friends that are coming on the team. I mean Lompoc's on the team and bringing a bunch of guys in, same with St.Joe's . So I just feel like we've got a real good team this year," said Prober, who's hoping to help the county team improve to 3-0 over SLO County.
Prober led the Pac-7 with 2,023 yards passing. He threw 16 touchdown passes. He also averaged nearly 40 yards per punt. Nearly 1,800 of his passing yards and 12 of his TD strikes went to Guzman and Wilson. "It means a lot. You've got one more game left in your senior year and you just want to go prove how good you are with your friends in the local area too," said Wilson, who caught 68 passes for 1,064 yards and 7 TD. He also was a beast on defense and led the league with 138 total tackles.
Guzman caught 38 passes for 715 yards and 5 touchdowns. Gamble, a co-captain last fall, helped anchor the offensive line that allowed the Warriors to average 330 yards of total offense per game. The Warriors went 3-7 last season and missed the CIF playoffs.
Santa Maria Nissan Mazda donated $2,500 toward the $20,000 car raffle prize that will awarded at the game. 100 percent of the proceeds from raffle and game ticket sales go to the participating schools' athletic departments. In the previous two years, the event raised more than $280,000.
"Anytime Santa Maria Nissan Mazda can get into doing something for the community, we're all about that," said Jim McCarty, the general manager of Santa Maria Nissan Mazda.
So far, players have been selected from Righetti, Lompoc, St. Joseph and Santa Maria High Schools.
